The Memory of 

Our Fallen Comrades 



INTRODUCTION. 

In this day, when we have ceased being sur- 
prised at anything, when the worst tragedies 
and direst catastrophes no longer shock us, it is 
only the unusual and extraordinary that gets 
our attention. When an individual like Sergeant 
Alvin York distinguishes himself for bravery 
and conspicuous service in battle, we are inter- 
ested in learning all we can about his life and 
his deeds of heroism. The same is true of a 
military unit that has won distinction. To 
excel, to win, is characteristic of the American 
spirit. As a people, we are still in the period of 
hero worship. We are proud of that man or 
team which wins. Likewise, we are proud of 
an army or a military unit that is victorious in 
battle. And when that particular unit has a 
distinguished record, full of daring exploits, 
we want to know its history. The 321st 
infantry has a history that is worthy of 
preserving and passing on to those who 
served with the regiment, to their friends, 
and to all people who want to know just what 
experiences the American soldiers passed 
through in France while they trained, worked, 
played, and fought to help win the World War.

INTRODUCTION 

Every man who saw service with the Ameri- 
can Expeditionary Forces helped in a special 
way to make the history of the World War. 
Each of these men, regardless of the nature of 
his service, has a peculiar interest in the history 
of the war in which he served. But the pages 
of glory in this history, so far as any man of 
the service himself is concerned, are those pages 
that record the story of his own outfit. Those 
are the pages in the drama of the World War 
that will always challenge his attention and grip 
his interest. All the facts in the history of his 
own outfit may be well known to him ; yet he 
wants these facts recorded in a form which can 
be easily preserved. In the years to come the 
history of his own organization will be to him 
the most priceless of all war souvenirs. It will 
be a precious memoir of his war days — a record 
of his own life and his soul-stirring experiences 
during the most momentous days through which 
he ever passed. This book contains such a 
record of the 321st Infantry, and was written 
upon the request of many comrades. 



PREFACE. 

The chief value of a history lies in the authen- 
ticity of its data. The author of this history 
had access to official records for the verification 
of historical data, and was a member of the reg- 
iment during its entire period of overseas serv- 
ice. He has endeavored to record those events 
and experiences which best interpret and 
portray the life and service of the men of the 
regiment. The little volume is sent forth with 
the hope that it may serve to keep alive those 
cherished memories of our war days in France, 
and to perpetuate that spirit of comradeship 
that bound us together so strongly during our 
overseas service. 

The publication of the history would not have 
been possible without the kindly interest, 
encouragement and help in the collection and 
preparation of data given by Col. Frank Hal- 
stead, Lieut. Col. Louis E. Schucker, Lieut. Col. 
Fred H. Bloomhardt, Capt. Curtis Bynum, First 
Lieut. Wm. C. Alexander, First Lieut. C. H. 
Howard, Sergt. P. K. Harrison, Sergt. Daniel 
Silverman, Corp. Paul A. Jones, Private W. B. 
Burch, Prof. George McF. McKie, also by the 
sergeants of the personnel office and by the com- 
pany clerks. 



PREFACE 

To these and all others who helped, the author 
feels deeply indebted, and wishes to extend to 
them his sincerest thanks. Special acknowl- 
edgment is gratefully accorded the authors of 
the poems and songs used.

G. H. Q. 

American Expeditionary Forces. 

General Orders ) France, 

No. 38-A. \ February 28, 1919. 

My Fellow Soldiers: 

Now that your service with the American Expedi- 
tionary Forces is about to terminate, I can not let you 
go without a personal word. At the call to arms, the 
patriotic young manhood of America eagerly responded 
and became the formidable army whose decisive victo- 
ries testify to its efficiency and its valor. With the 
support of the nation firmly united to defend the cause 
of liberty, our army has executed the will of the people 
with resolute purpose. Our democracy has been tested, 
and the forces of autocracy have been defeated. To 
the glory of the citizen-soldier, our troops have faith- 
fully fulfilled their trust, and in a succession of bril- 
liant offensives have overcome the menace to our civili- 
zation. 

As an individual, your part in the World War has 
been an important one in the sum total of our achieve- 
ments. Whether keeping lonely vigil in the trenches, 
or gallantly storming the enemy's stronghold; whether 
enduring monotonous drudgery at the rear, or sustain- 
ing the fighting line at the front, each has by cheerful 
endurance of hardship and privation, by vigor, strength 
and indomitable will, made effective by thorough organ- 
ization and cordial co-operation, you inspired the war- 
worn Allies with new life and turned the tide of 
threatened defeat into overwhelming victory. 

With a consecrated devotion to duty and a will to 
conquer, you have loyally served your country. By 



G. H. O. 

your exemplary conduct a standard has been established 
and maintained never before attained by any army. 
With mind and body as clean and strong as the decisive 
blows you delivered against the foe, you are soon to 
return to the pursuits of peace. In leaving the scenes 
of your victories, may I ask that you carry home your 
high ideals and continue to live as you have served — 
an honor to the principles for which you have fought 
and to the fallen comrades you leave behind. 

It is with pride in your success that I extend to you 
my sincere thanks for your splendid service to the army 
and to the nation. 

Faithfully, 

(Signed) John J. Pershing, 

Commander in Chief. 
Official: 

Robert C. Davis, 

Adjutant General.

CHAPTER I. 

LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERI- 
CAN CAMPS. 

Organization of Regiment. 

The 321st Infantry had its beginning at Camp 
Jackson. It was organized by General Order 
101, War Department, 1917. This order was 
effective August 5, 1917, but the organization 
of the regiment did not take place until the first 
week in September, 1917. The first officers' 
meeting was held August 31, 1917. The first 
assignment of officers was made September 4, 
and the first enlisted men arrived September 5. 

The original staff was composed of the follow- 
ing officers : 

Col. Edward W. Shuttleworth. 

Lieut. Col. J. Malcolm Graham. 

Capt. Gordan A. Duncan, Adjutant. 

Major Max L. Barker, Commanding First Battalion. 

Major Louis E. Schucker, Commanding Second Bat- 
talion. 

Capt. Daniel W. Adams, Commanding Third Bat- 
talion.

First Company Commanders. 

Headquarters Company — Capt. Gordan A. Duncan 
(Acting Adjutant) . 

Supply Company — Capt. Tan B. Smith. 

Machine Gun Company — Capt. Curtis Bynum. 

Company A — Capt. Daniel W. Adams (Commanding 
Third Battalion). 

Company B — Capt. Chas. R. Bagley. 

Company C — Capt. Cicero G. Falls. 

Company D — Capt. Augustine W. Folger. 

Company E — Capt. Andrew J. Harris (killed in 
action) . 

Company F — Capt. Geo. R. Dawson. 

Company G — Capt. Blackburn Hughes. 

Company H — First Lieut. Robert M. Barden. 

Company I — First Lieut. Henry A. Ferguson. 

Company K — First Lieut. Lawrence Crabb. 

Company L — First Lieut. Claude F. Andrews. 

Company M — First Lieut. Ernest B. Hunter. 

The first medical officer assigned to the 321st 
Infantry was Capt. Fred H. Bloomhardt, who 
served with the regiment throughout its entire 
period of service. Captain Bloomhardt was 
promoted to major April 30, 1918, and to lieu- 
tenant colonel early in 1919. 



First Days in Camp. 

The few men who composed the regiment at 
its organization were taken from the five per 
cent, called in the first draft, September 5, 1917. 
This first five per cent, ordered to training 

[4] 



LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERICAN CAMPS 

camps under the selective draft law formed the 
nucleus of the National Army which was organ- 
ized at that time. 

Camp Jackson, on September 5, 1917, when 
the first men drafted arrived there, was quite 
different in appearance from what it was a few 
months later. We, like all new men upon first 
reaching a military training camp, knew little 
about what awaited us. The camp was located 
on a ridge of thickly wooded sand hills. Just 
enough trees and stumps had been removed to 
provide for the construction of the large wooden 
barracks. These training camps were built 
under government emergency orders, and the 
contractors left all the finishing touches, and 
much of the manual labor to the Rookies who 
were to be trained in them, just as if such work 
was necessarily a part of their military train- 
ing. 

Those of us who came into camp during those 
first weeks spent almost as much time cutting 
trees, digging stumps, working roads and doing 
"landscape gardening" as in the study and prac- 
tice of things purely military. We were nat- 
urally very slow in understanding what digging 
stumps and "policing up" cigarette "ducks" and 
match sticks had to do with winning the war. 
But in the emergency, we obeyed orders out of 
loyalty to our government and to humanity, as 
if by instinct, and the work was done regardless 
of how menial or difficult. If one of us dared 
[5] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

question why a certain thing should be done, he 
promptly received the reply, "You're in the 
army now." That expression, to the American 
soldier, had about the same idea of fatalism as 
did "C'est le guerre" for the French. Anyway 
we accepted it as sufficient reason for becoming 
resigned to any fate that might befall us while 
in the army. 

Important Events During the First 
Months in Camp. 

But all was not work. There was time off 
for recreation and amusement, and also a few 
big days to break the monotony of camp life. 
The first formal review of the regiment by the 
commanding officer was held October 26, 1917. 
If we could only have known what this was the 
beginning of, and could have foreseen the many 
reviews that awaited us in the future, we would 
have doubtless mourned that night in sackcloth 
and ashes. It is a kind Providence that with- 
holds a soldier's future from him. It would 
require more real courage and heroism to face 
a known future of twelve months in army life 
during war time than to go "over the top" in a 
bayonet charge. 

The National colors arrived on November 2, 
1917, and were first used during a regimental 
review, November 5, which was followed the 
next day by the first divisional review. 

[6] 



LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERICAN CAMPS 

On November 24, 1917, was organized what 
proved to be the most successful baseball team 
in the American army. This team of the 321st 
Infantry, with its 1,000 per cent, record and sev- 
eral "no error" games to its credit, challenges 
any team in the American army to produce a 
finer record. The team made equally as fine a 
showing overseas as in American camps. Its 
last game was a "no error" game against the 
A. P. 0. 762 team at Le Mans, a few days before 
the regiment returned to the States. 

The Secretary of War, Newton D. Baker, 
visited Camp Jackson, December 21, 1917, and 
reviewed the 81st Division. The splendid show- 
ing the division made on this occasion, and the 
commendations received from the Secretary of 
War, made the men feel a little proud of them- 
selves and their division. They were beginning 
to see some reason for the hard and intensive 
training they were being put through. 

The dance given on December 5, 1917, by the 
officers of the regiment in honor of Colonel and 
Mrs. Shuttleworth will be remembered as one of 
the big social events of the 321st. But the offi- 
cers of the regiment will remember with even 
more pleasure the New Year's reception given 
them and their lady friends by Colonel and Mrs. 
Shuttleworth, January 1, 1918. 

Enthusiasm and interest ran high during the 
regiment's first Field Day, December 21, 1917. 
The splendid records made showed that the regi- 

[7] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

ment contained some promising athletic mate- 
rial. Company F won first place in the meet. 

The 321st also contained some good officer 
material. Thirty-four men from the regiment 
reported to the Third Officers' Training School 
at its opening, January 5, 1918, and thirty-two 
reported to the Fourth Officers' Training School 
which opened May 20, 1918. 

Ex-President Taft favored the camp with his 
presence, January 29, 1918, reviewed the 81st 
Division in the afternoon and addressed the men 
that night in Liberty Theater. 

The 321st was selected to parade as an "honor 
regiment in Columbia during the Washington 
Birthday celebration, February 22, 1918. 

Although the 81st Division was one of the 
first National Army divisions to be organized, 
it was not to be one of the first sent to France. 
This was evident as early as October 12, 1917, 
when at least 50 per cent, of the men in the divi- 
sion were transferred to regular army divisions, 
principally to the 30th. For more than a month 
there were hardly enough men in a battalion to 
form a full company. A continual transfer of 
men from the 81st during the winter and spring 
of 1918 kept the ranks of the division depleted. 
It looked as though the 81st was destined to be 
a depot division. 

But during May 11-18, 1918, the 81st was 
moved to Camp Sevier, and the tide turned. 

[8] 



LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERICAN CAMPS 

From that time on there was a rapid influx of 
men, especially during May and June. The 
321st got its full quota of these new men and 
was soon raised to war strength again. 

The 321st suffered a railroad disaster during 
its removal from Camp Jackson to Camp Sevier 
that rivals in its horror and suffering some of 
the regiment's overseas experiences. The train 
carrying the advance party of the 321st was 
wrecked on a trestle just as it was pulling out 
of Camp Jackson. The men selected for this 
advance party were a happy, jolly bunch, who 
came down to the station that bright May morn- 
ing in fine spirits, enthusiastic over making a 
move that would hasten the day when they 
would be sent overseas. Fortunately, Major 
Bloomhardt saw the cars turn over, and imme- 
diately rushed a detail with litters and first aid 
dressings to the scene. Lieut. Col. Halstead 
soon reached the wreck, restored order out of 
chaos and confusion, and directed the rescue 
parties. Major Bloomhardt's timely appear- 
ance and fast work made possible the rescue 
and administration of first aid to a large num- 
ber. There were nine killed and twenty-five 
wounded. 

It was during these first days in Camp Sevier 
that Lieut. Col. Halstead was placed in com- 
mand of the regiment. Probably more than 60 
per cent, of the men who served with the regi- 

[9] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

ment in France came to it after Lieut. Col. Hal- 
stead took command. Consequently neither of 
his predecessors ever became so well known to 
the regiment as a whole, or made such an indel- 
ible impression upon the men. It would be 
difficult to find another colonel with a more 
forceful personality. Much credit is due Col- 
onel Halstead for the high standing the 321st 
had in the First American Army. These hon- 
ors, however, should be shared with the majors 
of this regiment. The Second Battalion, under 
the command of Major Louis E. Schucker, 
received the highest rating of any battalion in 
the first Army. Since several changes were 
made in the commanding officers of the First 
and Third Battalions, the honors of these 
two battalions will have to be shared by 
several majors. But Major Angell, of the 
First Battalion, and Major Keith, of the 
Third Battalion, deserve especial recognition. 
Major Schucker was closely identified with 
the life of the regiment from its organiza- 
tion, being the only member of the original staff 
who remained in command throughout the 
entire period of service of the regiment. As 
Chairman of the Executive Committee of the 
"Wild Cat Veterans' Association/' Major 
Schucker had much to do with perfecting this 
organization, and in so doing rendered a distinct 
service not only to the regiment, but also to the 
entire division — a service that will be appre- 
[10]

ciated more as the years go by and the boys who 
are now veterans of the World War have had 
a reunion and renewed old friendships. 



Changes in Staff Officers and Company 
Commanders. 

Many changes occurred in the staff during 
the regiment's existence. The changes began 
when Captain Duncan was succeeded as adju- 
tant by Captain Bynum. Lieut. Col. J. Mal- 
colm Graham, who never joined the regiment, 
was succeeded by Lieut. Col. Claude S. Fries, 
November 6, 1917. Lieutenant Colonel Fries 
was succeeded by Lieut. Col. Earl W. Tanner, 
November 14, 1917. Lieutenant Colonel Tanner 
was in turn succeeded by Lieut. Col. Frank Hal- 
stead, March 1, 1918. Colonel Shuttleworth, 
under whose command and leadership the regi- 
ment had been organized, and who had won a 
warm place in the hearts of both officers and 
men, was succeeded by Colonel Hansford L. 
Threlkeld, March 26, 1918. Colonel Shuttle- 
worth was at that time discharged from the 
National Army and assigned to the First Infan- 
try, United States Army, as lieutenant colonel, 
and sent to the United States Army post in 
Honolulu. Colonel Threlkeld was assigned to 
the regiment April 10, 1918, and assumed com- 
mand the same day. The regiment was under 

[ll] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

the command of Lieutenant Colonel Halstead 
from the time Colonel Shuttleworth left, March 
26, until the arrival of Colonel Threlkeld, April 
10. Later, at Camp Sevier, Colonel Threlkeld 
was transferred and Lieutenant Colonel Hal- 
stead was placed in command, being promoted 
to the rank of colonel, June 17, 1918. Major 
Barker, commanding the First Battalion, was 
succeeded by Major Angell, who was later suc- 
ceeded by Major Pearle A. Davis. Captain 
Adams, commanding the Third Battalion, was 
succeeded by Major Warren S. Keith. The reg- 
iment was without a lieutenant colonel from 
June, 1918, when Lieutenant Colonel Halstead 
was placed in command, until September, 1918, 
when Lieut. Col. Clyde R. Abraham was 
assigned to the regiment at Denipere, St. Die 
sector, Vosges Mountains. Lieutenant Colonel 
Abraham was with the regiment only a few 
days, being succeeded by Lieut. Col. John W. 
Blanding. Captain Bynum was succeeded as 
adjutant by Capt. William W. Roberts, Decem- 
ber 25, 1918. On the eve of the regiment's 
return to the States, Major Schucker was made 
lieutenant colonel, taking the place of Lieuten- 
ant Colonel Blanding, who was away at school. 
But Lieutenant Colonel Schucker was loath to 
sever his relationship with the Second Battalion, 
because of his deep interest in the men of his 
command, and, therefore, retained his command 
of the Second Battalion until another change in 

[12] 



LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERICAN CAMPS 

the staff made it necessary for him to assume 
command of the regiment. This last change in 
the staff occurred when Colonel Halstead, who, 
on account of having been a regular army offi- 
cer, was transferred to the regular army and 
detained in France for service with the A. E. F. 
Embarkation Center at Le Mans. This change 
took place on the eve of the regiment's embarka- 
tion to the United States. Captain Hughes suc- 
ceeded Lieutenant Colonel Schucker as com- 
mander of the Second Battalion. 

There were even more changes among com- 
pany commanders than among staff command- 
ers. Some company commanders were only 
temporarily assigned and were replaced within 
a few weeks. A list of these early replace- 
ments is given below. 

Capt. R. S. Noah to Headquarters Company, Septem- 
ber 9, 1917. 

Capt. James T. Quarles to Machine Gun Company, 
September 27, 1917. 

Capt. John T. Sloan to Company A, September 27, 
1917. 

Capt. William Jseckle to Company K, September 27, 
1917. 

Capt. Warren S. Keith to Company L, September 27, 
1917. 

Capt. Sidney S. Alderman to Company M, September 
27, 1917. 

Capt. Gordan A. Duncan to Company H, September 
19, 1917. 

Capt. Guy Brown to Company H, October 5, 1917.

The later changes in company commanders 
were so frequent and numerous, no attempt has 
been made to record each change. 



Preparation for Overseas Service. 

After the first of July the "speed-it-up" fever 
struck the 81st. Then it was clear that our 
days in the States were numbered. About July 
10 it was generally known that Sunday, July 
14, would be our farewell day in Camp Sevier. 
It was suggested that those who wanted that 
farewell kiss had better have business at once 
with some telegraph or telephone operator. 

These last days in Camp Sevier were marked 
by hard work and a mixture of strange feelings. 
For the first time most of us realized that we 
were going to war, actually going to fight among 
bursting shells and dying men. Much of the 
serious thinking about the grim horrors of war 
was done during those last days at Sevier. 
After that most of the men apparently thought 
little about what might happen to them at the 
front. Many of them manifested a stolid indif- 
ference toward the horrors of war and accepted 
with a striking nonchalance each order to move 
toward the scene of action. So far as we were 
concerned, the bridges might be burned behind 
us — provided they were rebuilt for a return 
journey immediately after the fighting was 

[14] 



LIFE AND TRAINING IN AMERICAN CAMPS 

over. It never occurred to us then that there 
would be an Army of Occupation and months of 
weary waiting on the other side. The men of 
the 321st, like all other American soldiers, went 
into this war to fight it to a victorious finish for 
the Allies. We had that conception of our task 
from the beginning. The time required, 
whether three months or three years, was of 
little concern to us. But we could not under- 
stand how this task could include a seven months 
after war program in Europe, for at that time 
we thought victory would mean peace and a 
return home "toot sweet." 

As the shadows began to lengthen on that 
bright Sunday afternoon of July 14, 1918, those 
who had friends or loved ones present bade them 
farewell, and those who did not, bade farewell 
to the old camp with its familiar scenes. The 
train we boarded was routed straight through 
to Camp Upton, Long Island, N. Y. 

We arrived at Camp Upton the morning of 
July 16. Before mess call had sounded twice 
we were settled in our barracks and out on the 
drill field. Not a minute was to be lost. Orders 
to sail were expected any day, and the most of 
us were raw recruits, some having had less than 
two weeks' training. 

During the two weeks at Camp Upton we 
were carried through an intensive training 
schedule. But hard drilling is not all we have 
to remember Camp Upton for. Here we put 

[15] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

on O. D.'s, and received full overseas equipment. 
Here we passed in review three times a day — 
usually in the midst of a suffocating dust storm. 
Here Colonel Halstead made his last address 
before the regiment sailed for France. He 
made a lasting impression upon every man in 
the regiment that day. Henceforth the colonel 
of the 321st was well known to his men. 

The 30th of July found us en route to Hobo- 
ken, N. J., via Brooklyn and a ferry boat. We 
filed from the ferry boat onto the pier, through 
a big warehouse, and up the gang planks of the 
troop ships. The good women of the Red Cross 
were present, and gave us a happy send-off with 
hot coffee, buns, ice cream and "safe arrival" 
cards. 

In those moments, when we are good enough 
to think seriously about it at all, we wonder how 
the Red Cross women can work so untiringly, 
zealously, cheerfully, and with such utter self- 
effacement. But after all we know they are 
actuated by the mother instinct which seeks 
expression through self-sacrifice. The follow- 
ing poem from a mother, inspired by the sailing 
of her son, reveals the heart of millions of 
mothers who suffered with their sons in this 
war. Would that every mother's son could 
have been handed such a poem from his mother 
as he went aboard a transport !

A TRANSPORT SAILS FOR FRANCE. 

Today my heart sets sail. This trembling heart 
That ne'er before has ventured far beyond 
The encircling walls of home and love, fares out 
Aghast, upon a waste of treacherous waves, 
Beneath whose crested top of glittering white 
Lurks death, with cruel eyes and venomed fangs. 

heart of mine, be brave to know and bear 

All things which must be borne by his stout heart- 
His heart of steel, which once, short years ago, 
Beat close beneath thee, feeble, small and weak; 
And follow, follow on, by dark and day, 
Across the long leagues of that lonely sea, 
Until, God willing, loom the shores of France 
Before his eager, waiting, boyish eyes. 

So young to go — but steadfast, unafraid, 
Did I not teach him early to fear naught 
In all the world except to do a wrong? 
He cannot fear who fights for truth and right. 
And I must stay with him in steadfastness, 
Girding my spirit to be brave as his. 

Down every dark, rough road of march he treads, 
My soul shall walk beside. I shall be near, 
Feeling the cold, wet dews of dawn that wash 
His sleeping, upturned face and soft, brown hair. 

1 shall hear with him all the noise of war — 
The awful roaring of our rescuing guns, 
Answering the thunders of the enemy; 

See the sad, ravaged lands he goes to save, 
Their little children, homeless, poor and weak.

I shall sit by him when he rests, or plays 

A little, watching him at common tasks 

Which come to all, ev'n there, like the soft lights 

Of morn against a weary night of war. 

And on a day when he does valorously 

Some noble deed, as soldiers strive to do, 

Exult for him, who will not for himself. 

Sick, wounded, lonely, dreaming of his home, 
Far-reaching love may make the dream seem true. 
In prison — at that word my spirit quails — 
I -cannot speak it, Lord, unmingled with 
A prayer to Thee, who came on earth to save 
The sons of men, and lay, a little child, 
Upon Thy mother's breast. Be Thou a rock 
To shield him from the horrors of tha* hell, 
And hold me up, to stand until the end. 

If he must fall that our great land may live, 
Heart, be thou strong to bear with him that day 
His battle agony of blood and death ; 
Strong to die with him on his glorious field, 
And rise with him into a land of peace, 
A new land for his service and his love, 
Where death is but another name for life. 

Lord, the God of Battles, who didst give 
To men immortal life, and deathless love 
Of freedom, in Thy power and might alone 
My weak, home-keeping heart embarks today.

"OVER THERE" 

CHAPTER II. 

"OVER THERE." 

The Voyage — Life Aboard Army Trans- 
ports — Hoboken to Liverpool. 

The Walmer Castle, The Scandinavian, and 
The City of Glasgow, on which the 321st Infan- 
try embarked, were old English passenger 
boats, poorly equipped, and manned by English 
crews. The pages of this history should not be 
darkened by a detailed description of life on 
these troop ships. Certainly nothing about 
these boats, the mess and the crews in partic- 
ular, improved upon acquaintance. The boats 
had a smell of their own. A stench rose from 
the hatches that made one think of suicide. 
The odors from the kitchen were positively 
nauseating. If there is one memory connected 
with all our war experience that we should like 
to have blotted from our minds, it is the memory 
of the life on these troop ships. 

The next day, as we steamed out of the har- 
bor, the most of us felt, for the first time, those 
emotions that stir us as we see the tallest land- 
marks of our homeland sink behind the horizon 
and fade from our view. We were herded like 

[19] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

cattle. No respect had been paid the passenger 
capacity of the boats. The old adage, "The 
more, the merrier," is not applicable to every 
crowded situation. But we realized "C'est la 
guerre," although we could not say it at that 
time. The urgent need of men in France made 
it necessary to estimate a boat's capacity by the 
standing room a man required, rather than by 
the number of cubic feet of air and square feet 
of floor space needed for his health and comfort. 
This twelve day voyage on these troop ships was 
a real test of our stomachs, health, patience and 
morale. The fact that we survived this test 
with no loss of life, no accident, very little sick- 
ness, ravenous appetites and in good spirits, was 
a fair indication of how the 321st Infantry 
would meet the supreme test soon to come. 

It was our American spirit that overcame in 
this, as in many future emergencies. There is 
something very real and vital, and splendid 
about that intangible and indefinable thing 
called the "American spirit." It is the most 
distinguishing characteristic of the American 
soldier. It is the result of a psychology pecu- 
liarly American, the heritage of a free, liberty- 
loving people who have never known the yoke 
of bondage. The farther and longer the Ameri- 
can soldier is removed from his native haunts, 
the more freely and truly does his American 
spirit function. It is what makes him laugh 
and jest about his own troubles and hardships. 

[20] 



"OVER THERE" 

It gives him a sense of humor and an eye for 
the ridiculous. It turns bewildering predica- 
ments and exasperating circumstances into 
exciting adventures. It makes him a genius 
at furnishing amusement and entertainment for 
himself and others at all times and places, 
whether under shell fire or stuck fast in the mud 
of some isolated French village. It gives him 
a dash and daring in battle that makes him for- 
get how to retreat under fire. It makes him 
proud but modest over his victories. It pro- 
duces in him a comradeship that acts on the 
principle that "what is mine is thine" — a com- 
radeship that makes every soldier a buddie of 
every other soldier. Nothing but such a spirit 
could have enabled us to endure the life and 
food on these boats for twelve days. 

The most striking impressions of this voyage 
may be briefly summed up as follows : The epi- 
demic of seasickness the first night out, of which 
there was abundant evidence in every part of 
the boat, owing to the inadequate capacity of 
the receptacles furnished for the convenience of 
the seasick patients; the lifeboat drills; the 
ceaseless watch for submarines ; the solitude of 
midocean; the aurora borealis or Northern 
lights seen from our most northerly point off 
Newfoundland ; the services of the Y. M. C. A. 
with its books, magazines, writing material, 
games and graphophone ; the feeling that came 

[21] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

over us as we sighted land in a foreign country ; 
and the freedom and safety we felt as we walked 
down the gangplank and set foot on land once 
more. 



English Rest Camps — Experiences in 
Historic Old England. 

We landed in Liverpool, England, Sunday, 
August 11, but remained in that city only long 
enough to unload. Here the regiment was split 
up and sent to English rest camps : Headquar- 
ters first to Knotty Ash, near Liverpool, and 
then to Winall Downs, near Winchester; First 
and Second Battalions to Winall Downs ; Third 
Battalion via Manchester to Woodsley, near 
Romsey. That afternoon and night we had our 
first experiences with the English railroads, and 
the peculiar little English compartment trains. 
Our ride as usual had to be supplemented by a 
hike with full equipment. This was our first 
hike overseas, and was done at night over 
famous old English roads originally built by the 
Romans during the Roman invasion of England. 

We were told that these English camps were 
rest camps, but we would never have known it 
otherwise. We were too tired from our long 
voyage and the hike of the night before to 
become rested during two nights in bunkless 
barracks. However, it was better than no stop, 
and we were especially grateful for the privilege 

[22] 



"OVER THERE" 

of visiting some of the interesting and historic 
old cities of England. Winchester, the most 
interesting city visited, was for over four hun- 
dred years the capital of England. Here, dur- 
ing the Roman invasion of England, Julius 
Caesar camped with his famous Roman legions. 
Here on the wall of the historic old town hall is 
King Arthur's Round Table, which is a priceless 
and significant relic, suggestive of the legends, 
romances and adventures of the mythical king 
and his knights of chivalry. Here is also the 
oldest and most historic of the great English 
cathedrals. 

These were days of first impressions, and 
what later was passed unnoticed riveted our 
attention at that time. At Southampton we 
saw for the first time Scottish and Australian 
soldiers, German prisoners of war and wounded 
soldiers. 

Our trip to Southampton and rapid cruise 
across the English Channel was uneventful, but 
easily could have been otherwise, if we had run 
amuck one of the numerous German submarines 
infesting the channel waters at that time. 

We steamed out of the harbor at Southampton 
just after sunset, August 13. A wonderful twi- 
light gave an enchanting beauty to the towering 
cliffs along the shore, some of which were 
adorned with stately castles. In the quiet and 
beauty of this twilight it was hard for us to 
realize that we were in the danger zone of the 
[23] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

great war. But when we saw our boat slip out 
into the channel, under the cover of darkness, 
and dash at full speed across the channel we 
were partly aware at least of the immediate 
danger we were in. 

At Southampton the regiment was divided, 
some companies going on the Duchess of Argyle 
to Cherbourg, the others, including Headquar- 
ters, on the Mono Queen and the Londonderry 
to Le Havre. The regiment disembarked at 
these ports, August 14 and 16, and immediately 
after landing hiked to rest camps a few miles 
out from the ports. 

First Impressions of France and the 
French. 

This was for the most of us our first day in a 
foreign country, among a people who spoke a 
different language. Among our first impres- 
sions of France was the ancient and quaint 
aspect of everything. As we marched through 
the town and out into the country we surveyed 
everything we passed with an amazing keenness 
of interest. Knowing that we were to live and 
fight with the French for months to come, we 
were eager to learn all we could about them 
immediately upon our arrival. Consequently 
we were scrutinizingly observant of the appear- 
ance, manners, and customs of the people we 
passed that day. 

[24] 



."OVER THERE" 

Our two days' stay in these rest camps was a 
little more restful than in the first. We at least 
had the "comfort" of one of those automatically 
operated three-minute shower baths for which 
these English rest camps were noted. The 
scarcity and low temperature of the water 
caused many a poor fellow the embarrassment 
of finding himself nicely lathered from head to 
foot at the end of the three minutes, when the 
water was promptly cut off and an order given 
to clear out. A new shift that had been waiting 
their turn for half an hour on the outside was 
immediately rushed in. 

We were told on the morning of the 15th to 
be ready to break camp at 4:00 o'clock next 
morning. We welcomed the opportunity to 
leave that camp, but did not like such an early 
start. The fact that we were sleeping sixteen 
to the tent and on the uneven boards of floored 
tents did not make us wish for reveille at 3 :30. 



Through France in Cattle Cars. 

There was another surprise and an entirely 
new experience awaiting us that morning. We 
hiked over to the town of Cherbourg, where we 
were marched down beside a long string of box 
cars, each one of which was labeled "40 hommes 
— 8 Chevaux." We were counted off in groups 
of 40 and packed into these small rough box 

[25] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

cars (about half the size of the American box 
car), which bore unmistakable signs, which 
were equally distinguishable by sight and smell, 
of a recent cargo of cows. When the last man 
had crawled in the big side door, we realized 
that the soldier capacity of these cars had been 
based on standing room. Since we had been 
classed with horses and cows, we took it for 
granted that we were expected to stand in our 
sleep as they were required to do. But since 
there was no straw and fresh evidence of a 
recent use by cows, no one cared for room to 
lie down. The best way to enjoy cattle car 
rides is to occupy the smallest space possible and 
keep access to plenty of fresh air. This can 
best be done by sitting in the side door of the 
car with the feet dangling out. The first feel- 
ing we had when we got on these cars was 
one of disgust and resentment, but before that 
had time for expression, it was subdued by that 
finer spirit of the American soldier, which 
turned this two days' ride in cattle cars into an 
interesting excursion. To the war-stricken 
French we appeared more like gay excursionists 
than troops en route to a battlef ront. 

Tonnerre and its vicinity had been selected 
for the first overseas training area of the 81st 
Division. Headquarters was to be at Tonnerre. 
Headquarters of the 321st was to be at Flogny, 
and the regiment was supposed to detrain there. 
But through some misunderstanding the engi- 

[26] 



"OVER THERE" 

neer (French) had received orders from the 
train dispatcher to go to some place about 
twenty miles beyond, and so we passed through 
Flogny at the usual rate of forty miles per hour. 
By the time we reached Tonnerre, ten miles 
beyond Flogny, Major Schucker, who was in 
charge of the train, realized that something 
must be done and done quickly. He rushed to 
the engine and with drawn revolver persuaded 
the engineer to put us off there in Tonnerre. It 
was then late in the afternoon, and we had to 
hike back to Flogny, ten miles. 



First Overseas Training Area — Billeted 
With French Peasants. 

This ten mile hike with full packs, after a two 
days' ride on a cattle car, was one of the first 
features of our introduction to the "unendura- 
bles" and "impossibles" of modern warfare. 
That night we pitched tents in a big grassy 
meadow in front of an old French chateau, and 
for the first time slept in our "pup tents." The 
next day we were billeted in the villages of that 
vicinity. Headquarters, Machine Gun Com- 
pany and Supply Company were at Flogny; 
First Battalion at Percey, Second Battalion at 
Carissy and Villers Veneux, and Third Battal- 
ion at Lignieres. 

[27] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

During our stay here, August 17-September 
14, we were carried through an intensive 
training schedule with special emphasis upon 
extended order formations and bayonet prac- 
tice. 

This intensive training called for three square 
meals a day — something that we could not get 
at that time. It is said that the 321st arrived 
in France five days ahead of schedule and that 
no provision had been made for getting supplies 
to us at that time. We, at least, know that we 
reached Tonnerre ahead of Divisional Head- 
quarters, which had to be opened up by officers 
of our regiment. The 321st had a singular 
record of going ahead of schedules until after 
the Armistice was signed. From that time on 
the schedule chasers apparently lost some of 
their "pep." At least they did not seem able to 
get us home ahead of schedule. 

The unexpected arrival of a large number of 
troops in this district with poor transportation 
facilities made the difficulty of getting food sup- 
plies quite serious at times. For days at a time 
there was no use for a garbage can. There was 
also little use for the wash can, for we sopped 
our mess kits clean with the last morsel of 
bread, which was eaten with as much relish as 
the first. This scarcity of the army ration 
would have been of little consequence to us had 
it not been for two additional facts. First, the 
French of these villages had practically no f ood- 

[28] 



"OVER THERE" 

stuffs to sell to American soldiers; second, we 
were "broke," almost to a man, and only a few 
of us had the money to buy what little was 
offered for sale. Many of us had not been paid 
off since we entered the army in May. French 
bread and "vin rouge" seemed to be the staples 
of the French peasants, and we Sammies devel- 
oped a special fondness for both of these. 
Blackberries were plentiful and free for the 
picking, and many of us often supplemented our 
dessertless meals with a most delicious black- 
berry dessert. Tobacco of any kind was more 
difficult to get than food. It is bad enough to 
be hungry, but it is worse for habitual tobacco 
users to go for days without a taste of tobacco. 
Their nerves go to pieces and the craving almost 
drives them crazy. A few fellows had brought 
over a few extra cartons of cigarettes. As soon 
as one of these fellows lighted a cigarette he was 
surrounded by a group of eager buddies, each 
pleading for the next "draw." No street urchin 
ever picked up cigarette "stumps" more eagerly 
than we did at that time. For once, at least, 
police details were relieved of the obnoxious 
task of picking up "ducks." Then came the day 
when we got our first issue of Bull Durham, one 
sack per squad. This was placed in the hands 
of the corporals, who gave each man the "mak- 
ings" for three cigarettes a day, one after each 
meal. 

[29] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Although we had been in France a month, we 
were not attracted to that time-honored custom 
of the French which makes them feel perfectly 
at home under the same roof with the animals 
and fowls of the barnyard. Whether it is 
because of a special fondness the French peasant 
has for his goats, cows, horses, pigs, ^abbits, 
chickens, geese, ducks, and pigeons, that he 
often keeps all these animals and fowls under 
his own roof and in rooms adjoining his les 
chambres a coucher et la salle a manger, or 
whether it is because of his concern for their 
safety, is not quite clear to us. It may be due 
to our failure to get the French point of view, 
but at any rate, since our forced habitation with 
these highly domesticated animals, we would be 
loath to accept either reason as a justification 
for such a custom. 

One day trout were discovered in the swift, 
rocky streams, and trout fishing became a fasci- 
nating sport for some. Perhaps the most gen- 
erally indulged in sport was bathing and swim- 
ming in these creeks in the old-fashioned way. 
This sport brought to many of us pleasant recol- 
lections of the "Ole Swimmin' Hole'' days of our 
boyhood. 

Just as we were packing up to leave this area, 
the Q. M. paid us a visit, accompanied by his 
little iron chest. Pay day is always a welcome 
day, but our first pay day overseas, September 
12, was welcomed with a jubilant enthusiasm. 

[30] 



"OVER THERE" 

Ordered to the Front. 

September 14 was another red-letter day in 
our war calendar. This was the day we left 
this training area and started for the front. A 
long, tiresome hike put us in Ervy, where we 
spent one night in our "pup" tents, and were 
supplied with field equipment, such as rolling 
kitchens, wagons and water carts. Soon after 
our arrival we were assembled for an address 
by the colonel. This speech, extracts from 
which appear below, was Colonel Halstead's last 
message to us before we went into the trenches. 

Extracts from Colonel Halstead's speech 
before the 321st Infantry at Ervy, September 
14, 1918. 

"I think a lot of this regiment, and before I get to 
the front I want to have a few words with you — man 
to man, not, 'Why don't you keep step/ 'Hold your 
heads up,' and all that stuff — and perhaps give you a 
better understanding of my own feelings for you and 
my opinion of you. 

"You came to me only a very short time ago, and I 
had but a limited time to break you men in so you 
would have an even break with the Boche. The only 
way I could break you in and make soldiers out of you, 
was to knuckle you down and try to make of you able 
and efficient soldiers, well developed physically and well 
developed mentally. Soldiering in the United States 
is more or less a new thing. There are only a few of 
us who have devoted our time and life to soldiering. 
We had to strain every bit of energy we had to break 

[31] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

the 3,708 men of this regiment into soldiers. Germany- 
has been preparing for this war for thirty years. They 
have been fighting for four years; and while the won- 
derful war machine they had built up is very badly 
bent and dented, it is still entitled to military considera- 
tion. There isn't a man among you (with a few excep- 
tions, of course) who is not better fitted than the aver- 
age German you meet. 

"You are here assembled to go to the front, to take 
your place by your brothers, the Allies, in the most 
glorious time in the history of the present great war. 
We are not on the eve of success, but we have accom- 
plished a great offensive. The first report we had was 
that we had taken 8,000 prisoners, then 13,000, and 
General Bailey just told me there were 20,000, and they 
are still counting. When you realize how much work it 
takes to make a soldier (and you haven't all graduated 
yet), you will know that when you lose 20,000 in two 
days you are melting away too fast. So I say we are 
moving forward today at a most opportune time. 

"One month ago the Germans were marching on Paris 
with nothing to stop them. Two old regular army 
American divisions and the Marines who went out to 
meet them were met by the French and British, who 
told them the jig was up, the Germans had broken 
through on a 30 mile front, and the Americans told 
them, 'To hell with you,' and they stopped the Germans. 
You could have trained as well at Upton or Sevier, but 
they need you here. They are not going to put you 
into a very active line, but are going to put you into the 
trenches. In front of the trenches is ground called 
'No Man's Land,' but that's our land now. We are 
going to own that land. We have a lot of young men 
here and we are going to make the Boche sit up and 
wish they were at their own firesides, since we can't be 
at our own. Of course, at first we may make a few 
mistakes, but we will learn. I have had several officers 

[32] 



"OVER THERE" 

come to me and say to me, 'Will you let this battalion 
go in first? We think we can go through them.' I 
hear that in every battalion. 

"I know how heavy your packs are. I made them as 
heavy as they are, and when you get up there in the 
mountains you are going to be damned glad that you 
have that extra blanket. You have one more blanket 
with you than any other regiment in the American 
army in France. You may have to ditch one of them, 
but we will keep them while we can. 

"I have been yelling at you and drilling you, but I 
have every individual's interest at heart. I want to 
make you equal to the Boche and I want you to meet 
him on equal or better ground. There is not a man of 
you who is not a better man physically than when you 
came into the army. You might think that you are 
young, and your wives and sweethearts and mothers 
might think that you are too young to be killed. It is 
light for them to think that. But you are not going 
with the idea of getting killed, and if you hang together 
you are going to put this over. I went to Cuba when I 
was nineteen years old. When I started my father was 
catching a train and in a hurry, and didn't seem to 
feel very bad over my going. I believe he was glad 
of it and I thought I saw a twinkle in his eye — proud 
that I was going — and I was proud of it myself. He 
said to me : 'It takes a wagon load of bullets to kill one 
man, sickness is what kills an army, and I know if you 
get into a tight place you will stick it out.' 

"I wanted to let you know why you have been work- 
ing like you have. If you take 250 men out and say: 
'Bill, you and George come over here, we are going to 
throw a few hand grenades this morning,' and Bill 
says, 'Aw hell, we did that yesterday,' you would never 
get anywhere. You can't build an army that way. I 
am proud of every one of you. You have been made 
soldiers quicker than any men ever have in the history 

[33] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

of the world. You have the best regiment in the best 
division in the army, and if you should ask your bat- 
talion commander, he would say you had any battalion 
skinned, and he wouldn't be far wrong. 

'•Just think about this drive! After we get to the 
sector and get used to it, you will get into open warfare, 
and if they need us bad enough they will send us on 
to a more active front. But I am afraid we will not be 
that lucky. 

"I never was so anxious to get into anything. I may 
not feel that way about it tomorrow, or the next day, 
and I don't mean to say I never was scared, for I have 
been damned badly scared. The usual thing is that you 
get scared thinking about it, but when you get into it, 
there is nothing will stop a real live man. 

"General Bailey wishes you a pleasant trip, and I 
also hope you will have a fine trip. I never say good- 
bye. When you get an order carry it out, but first 
understand it. You have to use your head. In the 
present fighting I understand it will be on a mountain, 
and we have the Germans on a down hill push. Good- 
night, and I again wish you a pleasant trip." 

Another two days' cattle car ride, via Troyes, 
Chaumont and Epinal put us in Bruyeres. No 
description of this ride is necessary to recall the 
discomforts and cold suffered, especially by 
those who rode on the open flat cars. We spent 
the next two days in training in vicinity of Bel- 
mont, southeast of St. Die. 

We were delighted upon our arrival in St. Die 
during the night of September 18, to find a town 
with paved streets and stores. Here at last was 
a town large enough to supply all our wants, 

[34] 



"OVER THERE" 

which principally called for beaucoup eats and 
drinks. It was late the next day before we 
were convinced that our craving for good things 
to drink and eat (especially sweets) was not 
insatiable. We left the bakeries and the gro- 
cery and confectionery stores with depleted 
stocks. Some sold out entirely, and "fineesh" 
was the prompt reply to every would-be pur- 
chaser. 

On the night of September 19, under the cover 
of darkness, we took up our positions on the 
Raon TEtape sector in the Vosges Mountains, 
north of St. Die. This sector was held by the 
321st from September 19 to October 17. 



Under Shell Fire — Experiences in 
Front Line Trenches. 

The companies took their turn in the front 
line trenches, serving from 10 to 20 days each. 
This was our first experience under shell fire. 
The positions of the companies in reserve were 
well protected by a ridge of hills which shielded 
them from the enemy guns. Hence, they felt 
pretty safe. Nevertheless, "Fritz" had a pecu- 
liar fondness for shelling this area, and on sev- 
eral nights our reserves had an exciting demon- 
stration of Boche fireworks at close range. 
Several dozen high explosives landed within a 
few yards of the billets. Our reserves suffered 

[35] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

no casualties from shell fire, however, and the 
men found more cause for amusement than fear 
in these long range artillery attacks. Another 
sight still more interesting was the frequent 
anti-aircraft attacks upon visiting Boche planes. 
All those in reserve, nevertheless, felt more or 
less suspense, owing to the fact that they were 
subject to a call to action any hour of the day 
or night to repulse an infantry attack. 

But our most unique experiences — those 
fraught with real excitement and never-ending 
interest, came to us in the front line trenches. 
By October 10 all companies had moved into 
the front line. The thirty days the 321st held 
the front line of this sector was enough to thor- 
oughly initiate us into all that pertains to trench 
life. Among the things of which we will ever 
have a vivid recollection are: "Cooties," rats, 
mud, water, sleepless nights, endless guard duty, 
talking in a whisper, leaky, bunkless, over- 
crowded dugouts without light or heat. But 
nothing will be remembered with more vivid- 
ness than the shells that came shrieking and 
frying through the air day and night, many of 
which played havoc with our trenches and dug- 
outs. There is nothing that can more success- 
fully divert the mind from the physical discom- 
forts of guard duty in a muddy trench during a 
cold, rainy night than a Boche 77 that has your 
range and is placing a high explosive within a 
few yards of you every few minutes. Some- 

[36] 



"OVER THERE" 

times the German artillerymen were very per- 
sistent, keeping up this sort of thing until it 
got on our nerves. No, we were not afraid 
exactly, but were most uncomfortable. Time 
passes very slowly on such nights, and we could 
swear the next guard relief was sleeping over- 
time. 

German Infantry Attack Repulsed by 
Company I. 

Only one infantry attack was made against 
the 321st on this sector. That occurred at 
dawn, on the morning of October 9. This attack 
was successfully repulsed without any loss of 
ground by Company I. In preparation for the 
attack the Germans laid down a very heavy bar- 
rage, using 3,000 to 4,000 shells on a small sec- 
tor, occupied at that time by Company I. The 
Germans came over in two waves, following 
closely behind the barrage. They came over 
prepared to make an attack with liquid fire, but 
Company I captured the liquid fire gun before 
it could be used. The fine way in which this 
attack was repulsed was largely due to the 
splendid work of Sergeants Sutherland and 
Yerbe, and Lieutenant Schilletter. Sergeant 
Yerbe first held up the attack with automatic 
rifle, killing three Germans. Sergeant Suther- 
land's heroic deeds won for him a citation for 
bravery and a D. C. S. This was the first D. C. 

[37] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

S. awarded in the 81st Division. Lieutenant 
Schilletter displayed remarkable coolness and 
marked ability in commanding the men of 
his sector of the trench. There were nine 
wounded, but none killed, on the American side. 
The German casualties were thirteen killed and 
one wounded, who was taken prisoner. This 
was the first prisoner taken by the 81st Divi- 
sion. 

That morning, as we saw the stretcher bear- 
ers carrying our wounded comrades wrapped in 
bloody blankets to the first aid station, some 
unconscious, others groaning pitifully, we felt 
with a tremor of our whole being the horror of 
war. A new and fierce hate was born in our 
hearts for all things and people who cause war. 

On the night of October 16 those companies 
still remaining in the trenches were relieved by 
the French. The 81st Division was brigaded 
with the 20th French Division on this sector. 



Second Overseas Training Area. 

After spending two days in St. Die, we took 
a two days' hike to a training area near Ramber- 
villers. We arrived here the night of October 
20th, thoroughly tired out. We had covered 
about fifty kilometers in two days with full 
packs. 

[38] 



"OVER THERE" 

One incident of this hike will always be of 
interest to the men of Company H. The boys 
of Company H were unusually fagged and jaded. 
But "there's a reason." The day before they 
were served sour beans for dinner and had 
spent the previous night chasing up and down 
a ladder in their billet. That night, as usual, 
they slept in a barn loft which was accessible 
only by a ladder. During the night this ladder 
would not accommodate all those going and 
coming. The "emergency cases" had to jump 
down. Some badly sprained ankles were the. 
result. This unsavory diet, in its after effects,, 
was no respector of persons or rank. The fel- 
lows of that company have some good jokes on 
some officers and a chaplain. The police details 
thanked their lucky stars when an order came 
out next morning for an early departure. 

The ten days spent in the training area near 
Rambervillers were largely taken up with 
extended order formations and field problems. 
These were destined, and we felt pretty sure of 
the fact at the time, to be our last days of train- 
ing before we saw action on the front again. 
We soon learned that we were billed for a part 
in the Meuse-Argonne offensive, and expected to 
have to take part in the operations east of 
Verdun. 



[39] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Back to the Front — Forced Night 
Marches and Their Horrors. 

November 1 we broke camp and hiked to 
Chatel-Sur-Moselle. Here a long string of our 
"favorite" French passenger coaches pour Les 
Soldats Americains of the "40 Hommes and 8 
Chevaux" variety were waiting to take us to 
Sampigny. In cases of emergency, the French 
graciously extended the use of these trains de 
luxe to their comrades in arms, les soldats 
Americains. 

During our entire stay in France we have 
undergone no severer test of our endurance and 
morale than the marching between Sampigny 
and Verdun, via St. Mihiel, all of which had to 
be done under cover of darkness and in rain and 
mud. The sensations and experiences of such 
a march to the front are vividly related in the 
following poem by Sergeant Fair : 

BACK TO THE LINE. 

"Trampm* along through the darkness, 
Splashin' my way through the rain, 
With chafin' pack slung on my back, 
Bound for the trenches again. 

"Flashes o' light in the distance, 
Splotches o* red on the sky, 
The sound of a shell creatin' hell 
In a convoy creepin' by.

"Our line moves on like a shadow 

Pushing its way through the wreck, 
Each man in his place, rain in his face 
An' streaming cold down his neck. 

"Silent and grave, movin' forward, 
Each havin' thoughts all his own, 
As we tramp the path o' the War Lord's wrath 
Where the fires o' hell are blown. 

"Dreamin' o' home and the old folks, 
An' the fields o' yellow grain, 
An' the old rock spring, an' everything — 
Bound for the trenches again." 

—Sergeant Fair, in "Stars and Stripes." 

We arrived in Verdun November 3, and spent 
three days in the famous barracks in Pave, a 
suburb of Verdun. A visit to Verdun, now a 
veritable mass of ruins, which was the objective 
of the greatest battle of the World War, and 
which successfully repulsed the most formidable 
attack of the war, is in itself worth a trip across 
the Atlantic. Verdun, with its marvelous sys- 
tem of inner and outer forts, and its under- 
ground city and tunnels, is the most strongly 
fortified city in the world, and is capable of 
withstanding a siege of years. After realizing 
what we had seen in this most interesting and 
world-famed city we felt repaid, in a measure 
at least, for the hardships of our march. 



[41] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

CHAPTER III. 

"OVER THE TOP.'' 

Meuse-Argonne Offensive. 

The "Abomination of Desolation" 

Around Verdun. 

On the night of November 6 we moved into 
the dugouts of Ft. Vaux, Champ de Tir, and 
P. C. Normandie. Ft. Vaux, three kilometers 
northeast of Verdun, is one of the dozen or more 
strong forts that surround and protect the city. 
Several of these forts, including Ft. Vaux, fell 
into the hands of the Germans during their 
attacks in 1916. But enough of the forts 
remained uncaptured to keep the Germans out 
of the city itself. 

When we awoke and climbed out of our dug- 
outs the next morning we beheld another wonder 
of the World War. The wonder of this place, 
which is like all the territory for miles on the 
east, north and west of Verdun, is the utter 
desolation, the completeness and thoroughness 
of the destruction. Nothing was left standing, 
not a tree, nor even a bush. The sight was 
oppressive. The barren, shell torn hills were 
literally strewn with bones of French and Ger- 

[42]

These pictures give some idea of the gruesome 
aspect of the territory in which the men of 
the 321st had to live and fight while on the 
front. 



OVER THE TOP 

man soldiers who, just two years Before, had 
contested the summit of these hills in a bloody 
hand to hand combat. During the Crown 
Prince's attack on the forts of Verdun, the 
inferno of battle raged continuously for months 
with a fierceness and intensity possible only to 
modern warfare. There was something in the 
general aspect of the place that far transcended 
what our imagination had pictured to us from 
reading and hearing about it. The effect was 
wierd and sombre. It was indeed the "Abomi- 
nation of Desolation." 

Although we were hourly awaiting an order 
to move up on the front, where a terrific battle 
was being waged on a big scale with heavy 
losses on both sides, we felt practically no sus- 
pense or anxiety. By this time we had ceased 
to brood over our fate, whatever it might be, 
and had begun to accept everything as a matter 
of course. During the five days, November 
7-11, our entire future was focused at a very 
close range. The possible action of the next 
twelve hours interested us intensely, but we sel- 
dom thought of the future more than twenty- 
four hours ahead. Like a great athlete, on the 
eve of a hard contest, after a season of stren- 
uous training, we felt that a test of our powers 
and skill was at hand. But we were nerved for 
the occasion. We were awaiting the fateful 
hour with eager expectancy. 

[43] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

The eventful order to move up came at 5 :30 
on the morning of November 9. We spent the 
next two nights in support two miles back of 
our front line positions. Being under shell fire 
and having to send out patrols rendered sleep 
and rest impossible for many during these two 
days. 

November 11 was destined to be the most 
memorable day in the history of the 321st 
Infantry. This was probably true of every 
outfit that was in action on the morning of the 
11th. But it was particularly true of the 321st, 
in that it was our first and only participation in 
a great battle which subjected us to a heavy 
artillery barrage, and a sweeping machine gun 
fire. There were three significant hours during 
this day for the 321st: 2:30 a. m., when the 
order came for us to move up and attack on the 
east of Moranville; 6:00 a. m., when we 
deployed and went "over the top" through a 
heavy barrage; and 11:00 a. m., when news of 
the Armistice reached us as we were in the very 
act of taking the German main line trench into 
which the enemy had just been pushed from its 
front line positions. 

The spirit of the 321st on this fateful morn- 
ing is well expressed by Corp. Ivan Reid in the 
following poem : 



[44] 




HAUTECOURT— Where "B" and "A" Companies, 321st Infantry, were engaged in 
almost hand-to-hand fighting on the morning of Nov. 11, 1918. (Dept. of Meuse.)

321st, "went over*' at 6:05, Nov. 11, only to be halted by the armistice at 11 a. m. 
Picture taken Nov. 12, 1918, showing men salvaging their underwear, sox, etc., 
which they had thrown away the morning of the 11th. 



OVER THE TOP 

"THE 321ST WENT OVER THE TOP." 

The 321st went over the top 
To gallantly face the foe. 
They had longed for the chance 
That had brought them to France, 
They were ready and willing to go. 

While the shrapnel o'erhead 

Sighed the dirge of the dead, 

And the mist like a dull curtain fell, 

Ev'ry bayonet of steel 

Voiced a silent appeal: 

"Give 'em Hell, boys, give 'em Hell!" 

Then the order came down, 

And they crept o'er the ground, 

Grim shadows on one purpose bent, 

No count for the cost, 

No count for the lost, 

Just a prayer for some life that was spent. 

In pages of History, God grant them a place, 

Who will ever forget the day, 

Two vict'ries were won, 

Two tasks were well done, 

On November eleventh, they say.

The following detailed account of the opera- 
tions of the 321st Infantry on the morning of 
November 11, was taken from Colonel Hal- 
stead's "Official Report of the Operations of the 
321st Infantry, November 9-11, 1918." 



[45] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Operations of the 321st Infantry 
November 11, 1918. 

At 2:30 a. m. (2V& hours) the Commanding 
Officer, 321st Infantry, received at the same 
time Field Orders No. 7, 81st Division, and 
Field Orders No. 3, 161st Infantry Brigade, 
ordering attack at 6:00 a. m. (6 hours), after 
artillery preparation. The brigade order called 
for advance by the First and Third Battalions 
to their fronts, and for the moving up of the 
Second Battalion from Chatillon to Moranville 
during the night, to attack at the same hour, 
pushing into the interval between the First Bat- 
talion and the three companies of the 322d 
Infantry on its left. 

Forces at the Disposal of Commanding Officers, 
321st Infantry. 

As the result of divisional and brigade orders 
the Commanding Officer, 321st Infantry, had at 
his command the following troops : 

First, Second, Third Battalions, Machine Gun 
Company, Headquarters Company, Supply Com- 
pany, 321st Infantry. 

Two Companies, A and C, 317th Machine Gun 
Battalion assigned respectively to First and 
Second Battalions, 321st Infantry. 

Two Battalions 306th Engineers, Companies 
E and F 306th Ammunition Supply Train. 

[46] 



OVER THE TOP 

Companies B, C and D 322d Infantry, Second 
Battalion 129th Field Artillery, and Second 
Battalion 130th Field Artillery, both of which 
were under the command of the Commanding 
Officer 321st Infantry, after the beginning of 
the advance, so far as concerns the assigning 
of targets to be fired on. 

In addition to the forces enumerated above, 
the 322d Infantry constituted the brigade 
reserve, and the 60th Field Artillery Brigade, 
less the two battalions above referred to, and 
plus the sector guns, were under the command 
of the 81st Division for the preparation and 
support of the advance. 

Immediately upon receipt of the division and 
brigade orders for the attack, Field Orders No. 
9, 321st Infantry, were prepared and dispatched 
by double couriers to the units of the command. 
This order called for an attack with the utmost 
vigor in the direction and with the objectives 
assigned by the brigade order. 

During the early hours of the morning, the 
Second Battalion marched from Chatillon to 
Moranville, concentrating under the protection 
of the ruins of this village, this concentration 
being effected just before 6:00 a. m. (6 hours). 
At this point and time the Commanding Offi- 
cer, Second Battalion, received the regimental 
attack order, having already received the bri- 
gade order at Chatillon. 

[47] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

At 5 : 00 a. m. (5 hours) the artillery prepara- 
tion began, and proceeded with vigor until the 
hours for the attack, 6:00 a. m. (6 hours). It 
was directed against the enemy's first line posi- 
tions just east of Grimaucourt, and particularly 
against the two enemy strong points, Haute- 
court and Hermeville. 

At exactly 6 :00 a. m. (6 hours) the First Bat- 
talion and Third Battalion moved out straight 
to their fronts, two companies in assault and 
two companies in support, assaulting companies 
deploying at wide intervals, support companies 
in double line of combat groups. The visibility 
was extremely bad on account of very dense 
fog, and the assaulting companies almost imme- 
diately ran into heavy machine gun fire all 
along the front. 

At 6 : 15 (6 hours and 15 minutes) the Second 
Battalion moved out of Moranville in assault 
formation in a northeasterly direction, as 
directed by the regimental order, to move 
toward the southern edge of Hautecourt and 
outflank the enemy's position in Montricelle 
Bois. The advance of this battalion was 
delayed by its late march from Chatillon. After 
its advance was started, the battalion com- 
mander discovered that a wide gap existed 
between the First Battalion and Third Battal- 
ion, and he changed the direction of his attack, 
throwing his battalion into the gap and advanc- 
ing in a direction due eastward. The advance 

[48] 



OVER THE TOP 

of this battalion was pushed with vigor and, 
with the aid of the protection on its right and 
left, the Second Battalion very soon caught up 
with the advance of the First and Third Bat- 
talions, so that by 6:30 a. m. (6i/ 2 hours) the 
regiment was advancing practically along a 
straight front of nearly 3,000 meters, from 
right to left, Third Battalion, Second Battalion, 
First Battalion, three companies, 322d Infantry, 
each of the 321st Infantry Battalions with one 
machine gun company. 

In addition to the forces just enumerated, the 
316th (divisional) Machine Gun Battalion was 
at Blanzee, under command of the Commanding 
General 161st Brigade, to cover the right of the 
attacking line and protect the right flank of the 
regiment left exposed to enfilading fire by the 
wide gap between the 161st Brigade and the 
162d Brigade on its right. As the attack pro- 
gressed, the 316th Machine Gun Battalion 
moved forward, and when the fighting ended, 
two of its companies were abreast of the sup- 
port companies of the Third Battalion. 

The Boche, being advised of the impending 
attack by the artillery preparation, laid a heavy 
barrage along the lines occupied by the battal- 
ions the preceding night. In order to avoid the 
effect of this barrage, the Commanding Officer, 
Third Battalion, pushed his support companies 
close up on the rear of his assaulting companies 
[49]

THE 321ST INFANTRY 

in the early part of the advance, with the result 
that the enemy barrage fell in the rear of them 
and lost much of its effect. 

The advance will be described battalion by 
battalion. 

Third Battalion. 

In spite of the shelling and machine gun oppo- 
sition, the Third Battalion pushed steadily for- 
ward, Company M, on the left, sweeping 
through the south half of Grimaucourt and 
clearing out all opposition. At 7 :30 a. m. (7% 
hours), Companies M and I were in the open 
east of Grimaucourt, and the Battalion P. C. 
was moved forward to the enemy trench on the 
south edge of Grimaucourt, in which had been 
located one of the machine gun nests taken 
by Company M. The P. C. remained there 
throughout the rest of the action. 

Due to the courage and dash of the Signal 
Detachment, under command of Sergeant 
Childs, of the 306th Signal Corps, telephone 
lines were carried forward almost abreast of 
the advance of the battalion headquarters, so 
that telephonic communication was had by the 
battalion commander with regimental headquar- 
ters almost immediately after his nnve for- 
ward. 

As Company M fought through Grimaucourt, 
Company I advanced through the open marsh 
and stubble south of the village, under frontal

OVER THE TOP 

fire and oblique fire from machine guns on the 
exposed right flank. Realizing this, Captain 
Jseckle, without orders, pushed his company, 
Company K, from its position in right support 
up to the right of Company I, and when the 
fighting stopped his company was extending the 
line of Company I to the right and rear. 

The advance was continued vigorously until 
11 :00 a. m. (11 hours), at which time the order 
to cease firing found the two companies in the 
positions shown in black on the Position Sketch 
in the Appendix. 

Second Battalion. 

The heavy fog of the early morning of the 
11th made observation of surroundings almost 
impossible. The Second Battalion pushed out 
by compass bearing in the direction to bring it 
toward its objective, the southern edge of 
Hautecourt and the flank of the enemy's posi- 
tion in Montricelle Bois. The first reports of 
the battalion commander, Major Schucker, 
showed the battalion working into the interval 
between the three companies of the 322d Infan- 
try and the First Battalion, 321st Infantry. 

After advancing in this direction for over a 
quarter of an hour, failing to secure contact 
with the enemy, and receiving heavy machine 
gun fire from the east, his right flank, and dis- 
covering, moreover, a wide unprotected gap 
between the First and Third Battalions, the gap 

[51] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

which had been occupied the day before by the 
Third (center) Battalion of the 322d Infantry, 
and had been filled by no troops of the relieving 
regiment, Major Schucker, on his own initia- 
tive, changed the direction of his battalion and 
threw it into the space between the other two 
battalions. This change, in effect, put the 321st 
Infantry into the same formation as the relieved 
regiment, three battalions on line, and made a 
compact line of battle of the regimental front. 
Without this change, the Third Battalion would 
have been left to clean out the southern half of 
Grimaucourt, with no troops to attack and clear 
the northern half of the village, and both the 
Third Battalion and the First would have been 
left exposed to fire on three sides. 

After changing his direction, as described, 
the Commanding Officer, Second Battalion, 
pushed his advance with vigor to overtake the 
contested advance of the other two battalions. 
At 7:40 a. m. (7 hours and 40 minutes), Com- 
pany G reported contact with Compary M on 
its right. At 8 : 00 a. m. (8 hours) Company H 
reported contact with Company A on its left. 
At 9 : 00 a. m. (9 hours) messages received from 
Commanding Officer, Company H: "First Bat- 
talion not advancing. Am pushing ahead keep- 
ing in touch with Company G." 

At 9:15 a. m. (9 hours and 15 minutes) the 
battalion commander, seeing that his assaulting 
companies were about to endanger their flanks

by their advance, ordered Company F and Com- 
pany E to protect the left and right flanks of 
the assaulting waves. At 10:00 a. m. (10 
hours) message from Company G: "We are 
under heavy artillery barrage. Machine gun 
fire holding us up." The battalion commander 
ordered: "Open fire on terrain in front with 
automatics and advance rapidly." The same 
message was sent to Company H. 

At 10:30 a. m. (IOV2 hours) message from 
Company H received: "Under heavy artillery 
and machine gun fire. Am still going forward. 
Company A now 600 yards to our left rear." 
Company F pushed up one platoon to fill the 
gap between Company A and the advancing 
company. At 10 :30 a. m. (IOV2 hours) the fol- 
lowing message was sent to Company F, but was 
never delivered : "Attack vigorously on the left 
of Company H. Move northeast, cut off woods, 
join French southeast of Hautecourt." 

At 10:55 a. m. (10 hours and 55 minutes) 
Company H had pushed one automatic under 
the enemy's wire and had secured a foothold in 
the enemy's trenches, killing two machine gun 
crews of seven men. Company G had men 
through the enemy's wire. At this point in the 
advance, hostilities ceased. In this enemy 
trench, which had been reached by 10 :55 a. m. 
(10 hours and 55 minutes), there were one 
cannon, one minenwerfer and 6 heavy Maxim 
machine guns. 

[53] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

First Battalion. 

The First Battalion advanced with Companies 
B and A, from left to right, in assault, Compa- 
nies C and D, from left to right, in support. 
Company B left the trenches a minute or two 
before Company A, the right element guiding 
on an east and west line, which would have 
placed the head of the battalion on the Grimau- 
court-Hermeville road east of the turn at 
4110.6645. The left extended approximately 
500 meters north. The support companies, in 
line of combat groups, followed the assault com- 
panies at a distance of 500 yards. One platoon 
of Company A, 317th Machine Gun Battalion, 
accompanied each of the assaulting companies. 
Each support company sent forward to its 
assault company two squads of cleaners-up and 
one squad of machine gun ammunition carriers. 
The Third Platoon of the machine gun company 
and the 37 mm. gun were held in reserve near 
battalion P. C. A First Aid Station was estab- 
lished at 400.667. 

Directly after the companies went forward 
the battalion P. C. was moved into the Tran- 
chee de Reseau at 403.666, and remained there 
throughout the rest of the action. It was at all 
times in telephonic communication with regi- 
mental P. C. 

The companies advanced with excellent lateral 
and forward liaison through the dense fog, 

[54] 



OVER THE TOP 

experiencing heavy artillery and machine gun 
fire from the outset. The left support com- 
pany, Company C, was soon enfiladed by 
machine guns at edge of La Grande Cognon 
woods and was at the same time caught by 
intensified artillery fire. It drew slightly to the 
right. At 8:30 a. m. (8i/ 2 hours) the left 
assault company (Company B) ran into severe 
machine gun fire from the southern edge of 
Petite Cognon woods and from machine gun 
emplacements in the open at 4125.6730, to meet 
which it swung slightly to the northeast, but 
maintained liaison with the company on its 
right. In the face of this fire it advanced 200 
yards into the woods and through the opening, 
but was there held up by Captain Bagley, who 
sent a message to the battalion P. C, saying 
that he would withdraw from the woods and 
requested artillery preparation to knock out 
machine gun nests. 

On receipt of this message, artillery fire was 
immediately requested through regimental P. C, 
the co-ordinates being given. Messages were 
also sent to other companies of the battalion, 
notifying them of the contemplated barrage. 
At about 10 :15 a. m. (10 hours and 15 minutes) 
the artillery opened fire on the southern edge of 
Grande Cognon, on Petite Cognon, and on the 
open ground between and to the north. After 
about fifteen minutes the barrage lifted and 
Company B advanced straight through without 
[55] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

opposition. One abandoned machine gun was 
captured and considerable other war booty. By 
11:00 a. m. (11 hours) this company had 
advanced up to the heavy wire before the main 
defenses of Hautecourt. Three of its scouts 
had passed through the wire and were killed by 
machine gun fire within ten paces of the enemy 
trench, just before the suspension of hostilities. 

On the right, Company A went steadily for- 
ward, being held up once or twice by machine 
gun nests. It overcame this resistance, how- 
ever, without assistance, it being impossible to 
use 37 mm. gun on account of poor visibility. 
At 11:00 a. m. (11 hours) this company had 
also reached the enemy's wire and two of its 
scouts had gone through the wire into the 
enemy's position. 

Upon suspension of hostilities at 11 :00 a. m., 
Companies A and B reached the position shown 
in black on the Position Sketch in Appendix. A 
gap existing between the two, the battalion 
commander pushed forward Company D to hold 
the center of his battalion's line in the position 
shown on sketch. 

Companies of the 322d Infantry. 

Little definite information is at hand about 
the advance of the attached companies of the 
322d Infantry. They were in extremely diffi- 
cult terrain under the disorganizing effect of 

[56] 



OVER THE TOP 

dense woods and a deep marsh. The companies 
moved out to the advance and were in com- 
munication by runner with the First Battalion, 
321st Infantry, but were slightly in rear of its 
advance. Their final position is shown on the 
Position Sketch. 



The Advance Message Center. 

At 8:00 a. m. (8 hours) the Operations Offi- 
cer, with two runners, were sent forward from 
regimental P. C. to establish an advance mes- 
sage center in Moranville. On the way up 
toward the front lines, he found a number of 
soldiers who had become lost from their organi- 
zations; these he gathered together and took 
with him eastward along the Moulainville- 
Moranville road. By the time he reached the 
village, he had a detachment of forty or more 
men, which he organized into ammunition and 
stretcher carriers. About half of the men were 
turned over to the Commanding Officer, Com- 
pany C, 317th Machine Gun Battalion, who 
was found in Moranville without ammuni- 
tion for his company, and they were sent 
back to bring up cases of ammunition which 
had been dumped on the road during the 
night. The rest of the men, with the excep- 
tion of six men who were retained as run- 
ners for the message center, were turned 

[57] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

over to the dressing station of the Second Bat- 
talion to assist in the evacuation of the wounded. 

The Second Battalion (center battalion) P. C. 
was located in a pile of ruins on the north edge 
of Moranville, with telegraphic communication 
back with regimental P. C. This was the only 
telephonic communication to the rear at this 
time, 8:50 a. m., the First and Third Battalion 
P. C.'s having moved forward and having no 
wire with which to carry forward their lines. 
The advance message center was accordingly 
located with the Second Battalion P. C, at 9 
a. m. 

From this point the Advance Message Center 
was in telephonic communication with the regi- 
mental P. C, and there was a good runner com- 
munication to the First and Third Battalions 
and with the companies of the 322d Infantry. 
The battalions were immediately notified of the 
establishment of the Advance Message Center 
and were directed to send all reports to it. 
From here they were relayed to the regimental 
P. C, by telephone and by runner. The most 
important messages transmitted in this way 
appear in the Appendix. 

The Advance Message Center was able to 
co-ordinate the liaison of the whole battle front 
of the regiment, and was in touch with every 
forward unit of the command at all times. It 
was able to transmit orders and information 
from the regimental P. C. to forward units 
[58] 



OVER THE TOP 

much more expeditiously than they could have 
been transmitted direct, and fulfilled its func- 
tion in every way. It is considered that the 
liaison within the regiment was perfect. 



The Engineers. 

Having no infantry reserve, with this entire 
command committed to the attack, the regi- 
mental commander had ordered the Engineer 
Officer, Major Bunker, to hold his men as a regi- 
mental fighting reserve, near regimental P. C, 
except for a detachment which was ordered to 
proceed to Moranville and construct the bridge 
which has been destroyed on the Moulainville- 
Moranville road at the western entrance to the 
village. 

At 9 a. m. (9 hours) Major Bunker reported 
that the road was being cut up and would be 
out of action if it were not repaired. He 
requested that his men be relieved as regimen- 
tal reserve and be used to keep the road in 
repair for transport. He was ordered, at 9 :17 
a. m., to leave 100 of the 200 men in reserve and 
to use the other 100 for work on the road. 
Later in the morning all of the engineer troops 
were turned over to the engineer officer for this 
work. 

These troops, the Second Battalion, 306th 
Engineers, by their work of the morning of the 

[59] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

11th, well sustained the high reputation of the 
American engineers in France. The absolutely 
essential work of keeping in repair the two main 
approaches to the field of action, the Chatillon- 
Moranville and the Moulainville roads, was car- 
ried on so effectively that the regiment was 
able to get up its heaviest transport, and two 
batteries of 75's were able to advance up roads 
that had been pitted and churned by shell fire. 
The repair of the bridge leading into Moranville 
from the Moulainville-Moranville road enabled 
transport communication to be carried up to 
the battalion P. C.'s, and made possible the 
rapid evacuation of the wounded. 



The Ammunition Supply Train. 

The 306th Ammunition Supply Train, with 
little available transportation, did excellent 
work in bringing up supplies of ammunition. 
And it turned over its surplus of personnel to 
the engineers for assistance in the work on the 
roads and bridges. 

List of Enemy Units Engaged.

(e) Infantry Arms Employed. 

Machine Guns. 

The Browning Machine Gun, heavy, was used 
by the three machine gun companies participat- 
ing in the operation. However, on account of 
the fog, targets could not be picked up, and the 
machine guns did little firing. 

The machine gunners did excellent work in 
pushing their pieces forward, under heavy fire, 
practically as fast as the advance of the infan- 
try units. The result was that the machine 
guns were always in a position to fire had oppor- 
tunity presented a target. The dense fog hov- 
ered over the battlefield all the morning, until 
shortly after the suspension of hostilities, and 
made it impossible to get any great effects out 
of the machine guns. 

37 mm. Guns. 

The fog likewise prevented free use of the 
37 mm. gun. At no time during the action was 
the enemy visible, and it was impossible, simply 
from the sound of his machine gun fire, to locate 

[62] 



OVER THE TOP 

targets accurately enough to make the fire of 
the 37 mm. gun practicable. About fifty (50) 
rounds were fired by the gun assigned to the 
Second Battalion. These shots were fired at a 
high rate of speed at very indefinite targets, and 
their effect is not known. 

The 37 mm. gun in all cases was kept close to 
battalion headquarters, and it is certain they 
could have been very profitably used if the fog 
had lifted. 

Stokes Mortar. 

The regiment was not equipped with Stokes 
mortars. 

Rifle Grenades. 

Rifle grenades were in the possession of 
assaulting companies. Their use was affected 
by the fog very much in the same way as was 
the use of the machine gun and the one-pound- 
ers. The assaulting companies practically 
never saw the machine guns they were attack- 
ing until they were right upon them. There 
was little opportunity, therefore, for maneuver- 
ing and for the use of high angle fire. Machine 
gun opposition was overcome by the dash and 
stubborn persistence of the infantry, with its 
two main weapons, the rifle (and bayonet) and 
the automatic rifle. 

(f ) Auxiliary Arms Employed. 
There were no auxiliary arms, such as tanks 
and gas, used. 

[63] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

(g) Artillery Support. 

The artillery support was sadly lacking in 
one extremely important respect, in counter- 
battery work. There was practically no effect 
of our artillery on enemy batteries, and the 
Boche artillery was left practically free, and he 
made good use of his freedom. 

The fault lies not so much with our artillery, 
as with our lack of air service. While the fire 
of the German artillerists was at all times 
observed and corrected from the air, we seemed 
to be entirely without aerial observation. The 
result was that our counter-artillery guns had 
no targets assigned to them, except when they 
were directed from regimental headquarters on 
information obtained within the regiment. The 
fire on the targets so designated was very effec- 
tive. With this exception the work of our artil- 
lery was excellent. The preparation for th«* 
attack, though brief, was accurate and effective. 

(h) Terrain. 

The terrain of the action was difficult. Three 
general classes of terrain were to be found in 
the field of operations ; woods, with thick under- 
brush, and full of barbed wire; marsh, very 
wet and boggy, in which one sunk in some places 
almost up to the waist; and open ground pre- 
senting little in the way of natural obstacle, but 
much in the way of artificial obstacle, shell 
craters and wire entanglement. The Germans, 

[64] 



OVER THE TOP 

by damming small streams, had flooded the ter- 
rain in front of part of their wire. 

(i) Enemy Anti-Tank Defenses. 

The enemy had made elaborate preparations 
for defense against tanks. The greatest sur- 
prise was expressed by German prisoners at the 
absence of tanks in the action, their first ques- 
tion being, "Where are your tanks ?" 

Evidently expecting that any advance 
attempted in the sector would be assisted by 
tanks, the Germans had mined all the principal 
roads and the side streets of Moranville and 
Grimaucourt. The sign, "Achtung, Tankminee," 
was found in several places and several prison- 
ers volunteered the information that the prin- 
cipal roads and all bridges had been mined. 
One tank mine was exploded by a German shell, 
just in rear of the support companies of the 
First Battalion, but far enough away to cause 
no injury. 

The engineers were ordered, immediately 
after 11 :00 a. m., to inspect the streets of the 
village, the roads and the bridges and buildings 
for mines, and they uncovered a great many. 
The mine used was a number of large caliber 
shells, with fuses connected with electric wires. 
In some cases the mines were arranged to deto- 
nate on contact ; would support a loaded wagon, 
but would be discharged if a heavy truck or tank 
passed over them.

AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

CHAPTER IV. 

AFTER THE ARMISTICE. 

Bivouac on Battlefield — 175 Mile Hike. 

Immediately after hostilities ceased the 
American lines were consolidated. The com- 
panies bivouacked that night on the battlefield 
at the spot they had reached when firing ceased 
at 11 a. m. 

The night of November 11 stands out unique 
in the history of mankind. It was the most 
memorable night since the dawn of the Chris- 
tian era. It is hardly possible that man will 
ever again witness an event of more transcend- 
ant importance and significance to the entire 
world than the cessation of hostilities on Novem- 
ber 11. That night the bright light of our camp 
fires dispelled the dreary darkness that had 
settled like a pall upon northern France every 
night with the going down of the sun for four 
long years. Before the night of the 11th, the 
faint light of a cigarette was the signal for a 
deadly missile. That night the fields and woods 
were aglow with bright fires — the signals of 
peace and victory. The merry laughter and 
bright, happy faces of the fellows as they sat 
[69] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

around their open camp fires told of a joy too 
deep for words and too sacred for a public 
demonstration. Such demonstrations as fol- 
lowed the receipt of the news of the Armistice 
in our cities, would have been as much out of 
place on the front that day as at the funeral of 
a great and honored personage. We were on 
hallowed ground — hallowed and forever made 
sacred to us by the blood of our own comrades, 
whose mangled and shell-torn bodies still lay 
around us on the battlefield. 

The night of the 12th was spent by the side 
of a cemetery in Moulainville, where we bivou- 
acked again around cheerful camp fires with 
the starry heavens open to our gaze. 

The next day we hiked to Camp Driant, where 
we spent five days resting and getting ready for 
the long hike back to a training area in central 
France. 

The 175 kilometer hike from the front to this 
training area in the vicinity of Chatillon-Sur- 
Seine will always stand out as one of the great- 
est feats of our overseas experience. 

This hike was made with full packs, and with 
all the accouterments pertaining to the full and 
complete equipment of the American soldier. 
The march covered fifteen days, November 18- 
December 3, and was a severe test of physical 
endurance, morale and the jovial, happy disposi- 
tion of the American soldier. Among the many 
things that added to the difficulty of the hike 

[70] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

were three that proved to be discouraging han- 
dicaps: (1) The weakened condition of the 
men, due to exposure and hardships on the 
front; (2) the epidemics of dysentery and bad 
colds, to both of which at least 75 per cent, of 
the men fell victims ; and (3) the bad conditions 
under which we had to march and sleep. The 
distressing, continuous coughing that went on 
all night long in the billets (usually cow barns) 
during the march, still haunts us, and the "line 
of skirmishers" that was quickly formed, often 
at double time, immediately after every "fall 
out" along the road, is still a familiar scene to 
all of us. As usual, a few fell by the wayside, 
choosing rather to press the springs of a hos- 
pital cot than the mud of a French highway. 

We broke all our hiking records on the first 
day of the hike, November 18, when we made 
31 kilometers (about 20 miles). That day's 
march so nearly "finished" us, that it took us 
three days to recuperate. We took the rest of 
the hike in "broken doses," and suffered less 
disastrous results. 

During the hike overcoats were worn accord- 
ing to military orders, which did not always 
coincide with changes in the weather. It was 
nothing unusual to hike in the rain with rain 
coats and overcoats strapped on our packs. In 
spite of strict orders to keep everything we had, 
we were short many pieces of equipment and 
clothing when we reached our destination. 

[71] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Packs grew smaller and lighter with each day 
of the hike. When soldiers start on a long hike 
with full equipment, the law of self-preserva- 
tion soon asserts itself. 

There are certain commands that were 
repeated so often, I suppose they will ring in 
our ears until our dying day. "Keep on the 
right of the road," "Cover in file," "Keep step," 
"Dress up," "Fall out on the right of the 
road (smoke, if you wish)," "Shake it up," 

"111 be . Get th' hell out o' there. Double 

time." There were many others, but these are 
enough to remind us of certain "hard boiled" 
officers and non. corns. The army is one place 
where a man is certainly not his own boss. 

Thanksgiving came while we were on the 
long hike. That Thanksgiving will be remem- 
bered mostly for what we didn't have and didn't 
do in contrast to what we had had and had done 
on previous Thanksgivings. The Y. M. C. A. 
sent us some candy and cigars, which were 
badly needed and thoroughly enjoyed. It is 
said Company H celebrated the day with a keg 
of vin rouge. Extras for a big Thanksgiving 
dinner were out of the question. During the 
hike it was difficult for the mess sergeants to 
get even the regular supplies. But they did not 
forget us and as soon as we got settled in our 
new training area, they prepared a real Thanks- 
giving dinner with turkey. 

[72] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

The men of the Second Battalion and a few 
others will remember with a great deal of 
interest Major Schucker's address at Covingum. 
The major was in a happy, humorous mood. 
His witty expressions brought forth one burst 
of laughter after another. As usual he wound 
up by giving the men of his battalion the sound 
warning and fatherly advice which has always 
been an evidence to them of the major's concern 
for their personal welfare and best interests. 
On several other occasions he has urged the men 
of his command to save their money, take care 
of their health, and give the French a square 
deal. In their eagerness to express their esteem 
and admiration for their commanding officer 
the men for once disregarded all military for- 
malities and applauded heartily. 

Few things in the army require more physical 
stamina and "guts" than continuous marching 
day after day with full equipment. No better 
proof of the splendid way in which the 321st 
stood this trying test could be desired than the 
fact that on the last day we passed in review at 
attention (with full packs and complete equip- 
ment!), making 128 a minute. We hope the 
reviewers enjoyed this parade. Otherwise it 
was in vain. It certainly was done in pain. 
Aching backs and blistered feet made it hell 
for us. 

There is a bond of sympathy between men 
who have suffered in common any of the great 

[73]

experiences of life. Those of us who finished 
this hike together felt more closely bound 
together than ever by those ties of comradeship 
that had been established during our stay on 
the front. We also felt that we had something 
in common with the soldiers of past wars who 
had made long marches under trying condi- 
tions. 



After- War Training Area — Peasant 
Life in French Villages. 

Late on the afternoon of December 3, the 
321st reached its after- war training area in the 
vicinity of Chatillon-Sur-Seine. Headquarters, 
Headquarters Company, Supply Company, and 
317th Machine Gun Company were stationed at 
Ampilly, the First Battalion at Coulimier-le-sec, 
the Second Battalion at Puits, and the Third 
Battalion at Nesle and Massoult. 

These are typical little villages of rural 
France. They are inhabited almost solely by 
French peasants whose customs and habits 
apparently have not changed since the early 
days of the French republic. The American 
soldier was very nearly correct who said, if you 
had a rubber stamp of one French village, you 
would have them all. Yet, when the houses are 
considered individually their dissimilarity is 
equally as striking as their similarity. Inas- 
much as the French peasants never follow any 
[74] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

specific plan in the construction of a house, one 
never sees two houses exactly alike. But the 
same general plan is used in the construction 
of all of them. Consequently all of them have 
the same general appearance and arrangement. 
These five quiet, secluded little villages with a 
population varying from 200 to 300 each were 
destined to be the home of the 321st for five and 
one-half months. We should thank our lucky 
stars that we did not know the duration of our 
stay upon our arrival. The population of these 
villages was tripled in one night. The next 
morning in each village the natives saw 600 to 
800 American soldiers crawling out of stables, 
barn lofts and rooms in every house in the vil- 
lage. These lines from Sergeant Major Herty 
cleverly describe the scene in our billets at day- 
break : 

DAYBREAK IN A BILLET. 

It is a frosty morning, cold and damp; 

No sound disturbs the calm tranquility. 
The light that lives is but an ancient lamp, 

That guides the oxen ere they step on thee — 
But hark! the mighty bugler is awake, 

And does with his infernal weapon make 
A crashing sound like thunder. 

Doughboy, if thou remainest unmoved by such a noise, 
Tomorrow's sun will find thee out-of-luck; 

So, up ! thou brave, and with thy guns and toys 
Go forth and start to earn another buck. 
—Reg. Sergt. Maj. Howard A. Herty, in "Stars and 
Stripes." 

[75] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Most of the French peasants opened their 
homes and their hearts to us, and showed us a 
hospitality as genuine and unselfish as our own 
American homes could have shown the soldiers 
of any army. The French were keenly appre- 
ciative and profoundly thankful for the valuable 
services of the American soldiers. Many of 
them sacrificed and toiled day and night for 
American soldiers in grateful recognition of 
America's timely aid in the World War. 

But the hospitality of the French could not 
satisfy that longing for home and friends left 
behind. The two poems that follow appeared 
about that time and show how strong and gen- 
uine that feeling was. 

EMBERS. 

Yes, the time is hanging heavy 

For the boats are hauling home — 
When you look into the embers, 

'Stead o' fire, you see the foam 
Of a swaying, spraying ocean 

And the miles on miles of blue 
That are waltzing with the distance 

That's between your folks and you. 

And you maybe take the bellows 

That the Poilus use to blow 
Up the lazy, backward blazes 

Or the coals that loaf below. 
And you're apt to keep on pumping 

When the fire is under sway, 
For the embers are your ocean 

And your dream-boat's on the way. 

[76] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

In the clinky crink of embers 

There is sound of childish glee 
And the curling smoke is laden 

With a joyous jubilee. 
Sweeter still the vision tempers 

And a blue flame simmers low 
Where a white one mingles with it 

And a mother smiles at you. 

But the fagots soon are cinders 

And your dream is doomed to naught, 
When a fuming fire-log flounders 

On the hearth to break your thought; 
And the ocean, realistic, 

With its ever-churning foam, 
Stretches in again between you 

And the folks that wait at home. 
-Sergt. J. Clarence Edwards, in "Stars and Stripes." 



MAISON DU SOLDAT. 

His bed is anywhere; 

Damp as the ground of Bois Marteau, 
Beneath the dripping branches bare, 

Or where the shells and gas clouds go. 

His grave is anywhere, 

Upon the steep, black face of sec, 
Or on the plains that lie below, 

Wet as a sunken transport's deck. 

An 0. D. blanket clothes his sleep, 
Or serves as scanty burial shroud, 

And the wind, sole mourner, wandering 
Over the dim hills, sobs aloud. 



[77] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Living or dead, a soldier's home 

Is not in Picardy nor Toul; 
It's westward, where a maid at eve 

Scatters white roses in a pool. 

"One for his heart that aches for me — 
One for his soul that lives for me — 

And heart or soul one day will come, 
For here my soldier's home shall be." 
—J. O. G., F. A., in "Stars and Stripes." 

A return to the close order drill of American 
camp days gave to "Squads east and west" a 
trying monotony. The cessation of hostilities 
had robbed bayonet practice, field problems and 
maneuvers of all of their interest and excite- 
ment. Men have passed the imaginative period, 
and it is hard for them to play at war with any 
enthusiasm, even in the face of the prospect of 
immediate hostilities. For men who have just 
experienced the excitement and horrors of real 
battle, playing at war is the tamest and most 
farcical of all games. At that time we felt 
that the possibility of another outbreak of hos- 
tilities was so slight that we had no incentive 
for further training. This intensive training 
schedule gave way to a more lenient one after 
Christmas. The new order called for occa- 
sional short hikes of the regular army style. 
These hikes varied the regular morning sched- 
ule. 

But little had been done to relieve the tedium, 
monotony and general disagreeableness of life 

[78] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

in an army camp in a foreign country. Our 
reaction against what we had to put up with at 
that time is cleverly and humorously summed 
up in "A Buck Private's Prayer," by Paul 
Barry. This prayer first appeared in "The 
Puits Paragon, " a weekly newspaper edited, 
managed and published (without the aid of a 
printing press) by the Second Battalion's 
ingenious little journalist and public account- 
ant, Paul Barry. 

A BUCK PRIVATE'S PRAYER. 

Lord, take me where I'll never sleep 

On a bunk of wheat straw hard and cheap, 

Where I can sit on a chair instead of a keg, 

Where they don't give pills for a broken leg, 

Where I can take a good old time flop, 

Where pudding is not just sweetened slop, 

And where man no raw food gets, 

And nobody swipes his cigarettes. 

Lord, I don't like sandy jam; 

Give me some eggs and a little ham, 

Drill me not six hours a day; 

Forget stewed prunes for once, and say, 

I don't like beans half seasoned with lard. 

May I never be pinched by a provost guard, 

And pray, may I never miss retreat, 

And be confined to the company street. 

My stomach turns a flip if I see macaroni 

Or smell that "gold-fish" so awful boney. 

And the darned scared water which they call tea 

Evokes a string of words from me. 

And, Lord, I have never yet "learnt" 

To like army bread if it is burnt, 

And the beef; I am not exaggerating 

[79] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

When I say it's so, it would choke "ole Satan.'* 
Lord, take me somewhere, if you can, 
Where I'll not have to eat out of a darn mess pan, 
Where I'll never again hear, "Company, Halt," 
Nor eat boiled spuds without any salt. 
And I'll be so glad I'd almost weep, 
Could I get a mattress on which to sleep. 
Lord, take boiled mush off the bill o' fare. 
This is the end of a Buck Private's prayer. 
— Pvt. Paul Barry, Co. G., 321st Infantry, in "The 
Puits Paragon." 

Christmas and New Year came and went. 
The decorated "Y" huts with their Christmas 
trees and gift box for each man, and the Christ- 
mas trees for the French children on New 
Year's given by the American soldiers, were the 
only visible signs of a Christmastide. The 
2x4x6 boxes that stuffed the mail bags at that 
time were joyful reminders of the folks at home. 
The contents of those little boxes, whether eats 
or gifts, were enjoyed as a Christmas box never 
was enjoyed before. But the good cheer they 
brought and the happy memories they awakened 
meant even more to the homesick Sammies. 

During the spring the outstanding features of 
our training were parades, reviews and field 
inspections. Our colonel's interest in these 
never waned. Like a fond mother he liked to 
show us off. But on several occasions he 
couldn't show us off to advantage on account of 
the snow, rain and mud. Snowy, rainy days 
were not selected for reviews and field inspec- 

[80] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

tions, nor did it snow and rain because we were 
having a review or inspection, but there was 
usually a striking coincidence between the two. 
On one occasion we spread full equipment on a 
four inch snow. 

Our colonel was justly proud of his regiment, 
for it had been given the highest rating of any 
regiment in the 81st Division, and was generally 
considered one of the snappiest, best drilled and 
best disciplined regiments in the First Army. 

A member of the 321st could be spotted 
wherever he went by his military courtesy and 
soldierly bearing. He was also known by the 
way his leggins were wrapped (down) and the 
cocky manner in which he wore his cap, far 
over on the right side of his head. 

Reviews, inspections and military courtesy 
were early impressed upon us as an essential 
part of our military training. But after the 
Armistice there was no incentive for doing 
these things. Yet, for the sake of discipline 
and health, it was necessary to keep us busy 
doing something, and for a long time no one 
seemed to think of anything else we could do 
to promote health and maintain discipline. 

But once given the opportunity, it did not 
take us long to find means of amusing ourselves. 
Those who liked to hunt were soon out on the 
chase. Wild boar hunting was the favorite 
sport of many during the winter. The Cote 
d'Or department abounds in wild boar, and 

[81] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

although they are extremely difficult to kill, the 
camps were occasionally supplied with fresh 
meat. 



Schools — Leave Areas — Athletics — 
Shows. 

The things, however, that were of most inter- 
est and value to the men during their training 
period were (1) the educational classes in the 
vast school system of the A. E. F. ; (2) trips to 
the leave areas, and (3) athletic and entertain- 
ment programs promoted by the Y. M. C. A. 
and other welfare organizations. 

Besides a large number of men who were 
sent to French and British universities and the 
A. E. F. University at Beaune, each battalion 
had its post schools attended by 75 to 100 men 
from each battalion. 

One of the finest, most farsighted and most 
appreciated policies of the War Department was 
to open up leave areas for American soldiers 
throughout France and England. The leave 
areas which were in the noted health resorts 
and amusement centers of France and England, 
were the brightest and gayest spots in war 
stricken Europe. At these leave areas the men 
were free from all military duties, except to act 
gentlemanly, and maintain a soldierly bearing. 
They went and came at will and had a "good 
time" in their own way. Every man who went 
[82] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

to a leave area brought back with him at least 
one pleasant memory of his life in France. 

The introduction of athletics into the regular 
schedule was of special interest to many. Large 
numbers went out for football and baseball. 
The regiment furnished five players on the divi- 
sional football team and three players on the 
divisional basketball team. The football repre- 
sentatives were: Lieut. William A. Schilletter, 
Company I; Sergt. Geo. A. Owl, Company I; 
Sergt. James T. Smith, Company G ; Sergt. Nor- 
man G. La Motte, Company H; Corp. W. W. 
Waggoner, Company E. The basketball repre- 
sentatives were : Capt. Blackburn Hughes, Com- 
pany G ; Capt. Walter R. Rothensies, Headquar- 
ters Company; Corp. Chas. J. McGowan, Com- 
pany H. Mention has already been made of the 
regimental baseball team with its remarkable 
record. The team never lost a game, either in 
the States or overseas. While we are proud of 
the records of our best athletes and special 
teams, yet we know that the company teams and 
company athletics in which large numbers of 
men could take part meant most for the men as 
a whole. Each company had its own football 
and baseball teams, and played inter-company 
games. Perhaps the most brilliant playing 
done on any of the company teams was done by 
Corp. "Whitie" Glazner, who pitched for Com- 
pany H. 

[83] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

It was a man from the 321st, Sergt. James B. 
Mcintosh, that copped the heavyweight wres- 
tling championship of the Eighth Army Corps. 
Sergeant Mcintosh won in the championship 
bout over Jankowski, "The Russian Lion," of 
the 29th Division, and fought his way through 
to the A. E. F. finals, winning all matches except 
his final match for the A. E. F. championship. 

One of the most surprising developments in 
the A. E. F., and especially in the 81st Division, 
was the discovery of so much splendid theatrical 
talent. The Wildcat show, "0. U. Wildcats!" 
was a howling success throughout its tour of 
the American camps in France. It received the 
heartiest applause and highest commendations 
from officers and men everywhere it was played. 
The play was also given in the large theaters of 
Paris, Tours and Le Mans, and each time took 
the house by storm. Many have said that there 
was no soldier boys' play in the A. E. F. more 
popular than "0. U. Wildcats." It was a typical 
doughboys' play, depicting and portraying, in a 
most realistic manner by means of appropriate 
costumes, scenery and clever impersonations, 
doughboy life in France. En route home the 
play was given aboard the U. S. S. Manchuria, 
and again in Newport News, Va., after the regi- 
ment landed. 

Private Clyde Hooper, who played the role of 
a "Raw Recruit," was by common consent the 
star of the whole performance. His dry humor,

Sergeant Mcintosh's wrestling tour took him through 
the principal cities of England, Belgium, Germany, 
Switzerland, Italy, Spain and France. His last match 
was staged in the Monte Carlo Casino before 7,000 spec- 
tators. Single-handed and unaided, Sergeant Mcintosh 
fought his way to the A. E. F. finals.

burlesque on Southern dialect and droll manner 
produced an uproar every time he came on the 
stage. One of his song hits was: 

Down where the watermillon grows, 

How I love her, nobody knows; 

I allers go to see her in my Sunday meetin' clothes, 

Down where the watermillon grows. 

Other songs that made a hit in this play 
were : "I 'Wanta' Go Back," by Clyde Hooper, 
and "We Are Awfully Glad We Are Soldiers," 
by Joe Goodwin. "The Bloody War," by Sergt. 
H. G. Reagan, of the 321st, was perhaps the 
most popular song of the play. A few verses 
of this song follow : 

THE BLOODY WAR. 

I was a simple country boy, 

I lived out on the farm; 
I never even killed a flea, 

Or done nobody harm. 
It's bloody war, it's bloody war. 

One day the sheriff caught me, 
He says, "Come with me, my son; 

Your Uncle Sammy needs you, 
To help him 'tote' a gun." 

It's bloody war. . . 

They took me to the train next day 

The crowd it was immense; 
I never could get with my girl, 

But I kissed her through the fence. 
It's bloody war. . . 

[85] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

When I first landed at the camp, 

I certainly did feel blue; 
My sergeant says, "Cheer up, old boy, 

We'll make a man of you." 
It's bloody war. . . 

They fed me on potatoes, 
And beans, three times a day; 

It must be all the hogs are dead, 
And the hens, they never lay. 

It's bloody war. . . 

They punched my poor arm full of holes, 

They vaccinated me; 
The Doc thought it was funny, 

But the joke, I failed to see. 
It's bloody war. . . 

They tried to teach me how to drill, 

I did the best I could; 
But my captain told me to my face, 

My head was made of wood. 
It's bloody war. . . 

They sent me out on the range, 

To hear the bullets sing; 
I shot and shot for one whole day, 

And never hit a thing. 
It's bloody war. . . 

My captain said to "shoot at will," 

I says "Which one is he?" 
That made my captain angry, 

And he fired his gun at me. 
It's bloody war. . . 

They moved me away from camp, 
I landed o'er in France; 

[86] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

I didn't like the idea much, 

But thought I'd take a chance. 
It's bloody war. . . 

Now, when I struck that foreign shore, 

I looked around with glee; 
But rain and kilometers 

Were all that I could see. 
It's bloody war. . . 

I ran all over Europe, 

Fighting for my life; 
Before I'll go to war again, 

I'll send my darling wife. 
It's bloody war. . . 

— Sergt. H. G. Reagan, 321st Infantry. 

The following list of men who played leading 
roles in "0. U. Wildcats" shows that the 321st 
was well represented on our divisional show: 
Private Ed Hearne, Corp. Horald A. Lane, 
Sergt. Grady Reagan, Private Warren W. Glas- 
pey (Stage Manager), Private William Dro- 
vetta (Asst. Stage Carpenter). Much of the 
credit for the success of "O. U. Wildcats" is due 
Mr. E. J. Newbegin, director of the Y. M. C. A. 
entertainment work for the 81st Division. 

But the most popular play with the 321st was 
our own play, "Homeward Bound." Like "0. 
U. Wildcats," the 321st show was clean through- 
out and of a very high order. It compared 
favorably with best divisional shows, and was 
considered by some critics to be the best regi- 
mental show in the A. E. F.

THE 321ST INFANTRY 

These special features of the spring program 
helped greatly to cure our homesickness and 
relieve the tedium of the daily military routine. 
For weeks after we first went to our after-war 
training area there was absolutely nothing in 
the way of amusement or entertainment. The 
war was over. All incentive for further train- 
ing and preparation for war was gone. The 
inevitable reaction that follows a period of 
intensive effort under high tension had come. 
We were obsessed with the sole thought of going 
home. All duty was irksome. The void and 
emptiness of our waking hours when off duty 
was proving fatal. The lack of any recrea- 
tional activity or stimulating amusement was 
producing dire results. 



The Y. M. C. A. and Other Welfare 
Organizations. 

In the light of these conditions one can appre- 
ciate what a tremendously important service 
the Y. M. C. A. and other welfare organizations 
rendered our outfit through the educational, 
athletic and entertainment programs just 
described. In our regiment the welfare organi- 
zations were ably assisted in the execution of 
these programs by our officers, who were quick 
to appreciate how vital and essential such activi- 
ties were to morale and to the general happiness 

[90] 






AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

and well-being of the men. As soon as these 
activities were introduced into the regular train- 
ing schedule and into the "Y" huts during the 
evenings, the morale and general good feeling 
throughout the camp increased fifty per cent. 

Notwithstanding the harsh criticism and gen- 
eral "cussing out" that these welfare organiza- 
tions got ; yet there was a hearty response to all 
these activities, and a universal use of all priv- 
ileges they offered. In our clamor for the 
things we couldn't get, we sometimes forgot to 
say "Thank you" for the many things we did 
get. The welfare workers and the chaplains 
were untiring in their efforts to serve us in 
every way possible. We shall often think of 
these men, and particularly the heroic little 
women, who served us so generously and unsel- 
fishly day and night. 



King and Queen of Belgium Review 
81st Division. 

About the middle of March it was announced 
that on March 20 the 81st Division would be 
reviewed by the King and Queen of the Bel- 
gians. During the next five days every camp 
throughout the division was astir with prepara- 
tions for this review. Nothing was left undone 
that would improve the appearance of the men 
or their equipment. But after standing in the 

[91] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

snow, rain and hail for several hours that day 
and tramping around in the mud for several 
more hours, our appearance was not as immacu- 
late as desired. Neither were we in the mood 
to be presented to a king and queen. Reviews 
on such days were not conducive to a gracious, 
affable disposition. Yet we looked our best and 
did our best for the sake of the flag we followed 
and the country we represented. We found 
King Albert and the Queen very democratic and 
cordial. The King and Queen, accompanied by 
General Pershing and the divisional staff, 
walked through the ranks. Some of the men 
claim the honor of shaking hands with the King 
and Queen and having remarks addressed to 
them personally. This was a red-letter day in 
the history of the 321st. 



General Pershing Reviews 81st Division 
for Last Time. 

Another red-letter day soon followed this, 
when General Pershing himself reviewed the 
81st Division on April 10. The two reviews 
were very much alike and the weather condi- 
tions about the same. But the impossible hap- 
pened that day. The men came back singing 
and rejoicing. A review had never before pro- 
duced such an effect on the men. But it wasn't 
the review. It was something General Persh- 

[92] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

ing said in his speech about an "early return 
home" that put the men in such good spirits. 
This was the first definite information we had 
had regarding the time of our return to the 
States. General Pershing will never know, per- 
haps, how he gladdened the hearts of the Wild- 
cats that day. General Pershing is not an 
orator, but he speaks with such an intelligent, 
sympathetic interest in the men and evinces 
such a high idealism and bigness of heart that 
his hearers are irresistibly drawn to him. Stal- 
wart and knightly in appearance, soldierly in 
bearing and kindly in countenance, the Com- 
mander in Chief of the American Expeditionary 
Forces is a masterful leader of men. 

Extracts from General Pershing's speech 
before the 81st Division at Chatillon-Sur-Seme, 
France, on occasion of the review, April 10, 
1919: 

"It has seldom been my privilege to review an 
entire division as carefully as I have this one — 
one that is booked for an early departure home. 
I felt that I could not allow the division to go 
home without telling you of my thoughts regard- 
ing your deeds over here. How I must thank 
you for your deeds over here! How I must 
thank you for your spirit, your morale, and 
your ability to stand the hardships that make 
up the soldier's life during a campaign in mod- 
ern warfare. Some divisions that comprise the 

[93] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

A. E. F. saw more actual fighting than others. 
That is because the opportunity was theirs, and 
not because any one division possessed more 
fighting ability. The modern army is a vast 
machine. Every unit must play its part. The 
cog is worthless if one tooth is broken. The 
bolt is worthless without the nut. Each of you 
has played his part and played it well. From 
the highest rank to the lowest, you have done 
your appointed tasks in making war on a foe 
that would trample humanity under his iron 
heel. 

"It is the opinion of the Allied Higher Com- 
mand that it was the American army that 
turned the tide of battle toward the Allied cause. 
There is no question regarding this. In the 
operation at St. Mihiel, the largest army ever 
assembled took part. The dogged aggressive- 
ness at Argonne Forest cleared that thorn in 
the side of the Allied army. Chateau-Thierry 
demonstrated to the enemy that their cause was 
lost, and the American army was the factor 
that caused this feeling. When you go home 
you will have just cause for pride in your deeds 
over here. They will welcome you, for they 
have followed you through all the trying days. 

"Finally, I want to thank you for your clean- 
liness, your morals while in France. I am 
proud, very proud, to be in command of the 
world's finest army — the American Expedition- 
ary Force."

Wildcat Veterans" Association. 

No better evidence of the fine esprit de corps 
of the 81st Division is needed than the hearty 
and cordial reception accorded the idea of a vet- 
erans' association. Once a "Wildcat" always a 
"Wildcat" was the spirit that characterized the 
boys of the 321st, and they fell for the "Wildcat 
Veterans' Association" almost to a man. It 
was easy for Lieutenant Colonel Schucker and 
his team of speakers, Paul Barry and Walter E. 
Burnett, to convince us that we should have a 
divisional organization which would foster the 
splendid spirit of comradeship that had made 
us all feel like buddies, perpetuate those high 
ideals of service and citizenship that had actu- 
ated us in our overseas service, and arrange for 
conventions. 

The following poem portrays the comrade- 
ship that the Wildcat Vets have for each other : 

"NOW THAT IT'S ALL OVER." 

Did you ever hike millions of miles, 

And carry a ton on your back, 
And blister your heels and your shoulders, too, 

Where the straps run down from the pack, 
In the rain or the snow or the mud, perhaps, 

In the smothering heat or the cold? 
If you have, why, then, you're a buddy of ours, 

And we welcome you into our fold. 

[95] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

Did you ever eat with your plate in your lap, 

With your cup on the ground at your side, 
While cooties and bugs of species untold, 

Danced fox-trots over your hide? 
Did you ever sleep in a tent so small 

That your head and your feet played tag? 
Then shake, old man, you're a pal of ours, 

For you've followed the same old flag. 

Did you ever stand in a front line trench, 

With Fritzie a few feet away, 
With Jerries and Minnies a-whistling around, 

And gas coming over all day? 
With No Man's Land a sea of steel 

And a tempest of bursting shell? 
Then, come in, old man, and toast your shins, 

For we're all just back from hell. 

—J. K. M., in "Stars and Stripes.' 



Shooting Competition — Records — 
A. E. F. Shoot at Le Mans. 

The experience we had had shooting at live 
targets in battle greatly increased our interest 
in marksmanship. As a result our interest in 
target practice on the rifle ranges after the war 
was keener than ever before. Each man was 
anxious to establish a new record for himself. 
The interest aroused in shooting soon led to 
shooting contests between companies, regiments 
and brigades. Later, out of these contests grew 
the big A. E. F. shoot at Le Mans, in which 
thousands participated and many new records 
were made. 

[96] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

The 321st showed up well in all these marks- 
manship tests. In both of the intra-brigade 
(81st Division) shooting contests, the 321st won 
over the 322d. In the big A. E. F. shooting 
competition at Le Mans, May 5-24, the 321st 
had twenty entries in the rifle competition (one 
automatic rifle), and six entries in the pistol 
competition. This was the largest number of 
entries by any one regiment in the 81st Divi- 
sion. The 321st made the second highest stand- 
ing in the 81st Division, being beaten only by 
her old rival, the 322d. Our standing with all 
regiments participating was 28th out of 82, with 
a general average of 478. We would have 
ranked about 18th, if two men had not been 
substituted at the last moment who had never 
fired a Springfield rifle. Their scores were 404 
and 415. 

Four men from the 321st won medals : 

Sergt. John T. Covington, Company A. 
Corp. A. W. Bates, Company L. 
Corp. W. P. Chapman, Company K. 
Corp. F. L. Perry, Company F. 

Entries from the 321st Infantry in the Rifle

Health Record — Court-Martial 
Record. 

The 321st has two other records to be proud 
of — health and court-martial record. The 
health records of the 81st Division show that 
the 321st had fewer men sick, and a smaller 
number in hospitals than any other regiment 
in the division. There was only one death from 
disease in the Second Battalion during overseas 
service. (Company H must have expected a 
death, for it is said they had a rehearsal of a 
military funeral one Sunday morning.) The 
credit for this very unusual health record is 
largely due to Lieutenant Colonel Bloomhardt, 
who not only exercised great skill a? a physi- 
cian, but also great care in safeguarding the 
health of the regiment. 

In the matter of courts-martial, the 321st 
again stands first in the division, having to its 
credit fewer courts-martial than any other regi- 
ment. Here again the honors go to the Second 
Battalion, which went for eight months, May, 
1918, to January, 1919, without a single court- 
martial.

Last Days in France — Embarkation 
Orders. 

Those were happy days the last of April, when 
we got orders to prepare for embarkation. The 
81st Division went into the S. 0. S. May 2, and 
we knew that meant an early departure. Soon 
after this date we got orders to be ready to move 
to the Le Mans area May 12. 

It was not until we began getting ready to 
leave those little villages in which we had spent 
the winter and spring that we realized how 
many things there were in our camp life that 
we really could enjoy. We had kept adding 
comforts and conveniences to our billets until 
they were fairly comfortable. We spent many 
happy hours around the big open fireplaces in 
those old billets. When we were not cooking 
eggs, French fried potatoes and toasting bread, 
we would be telling jokes and stories, or singing. 
But the two subjects that usually monopolized 
the conversation for at least part of each eve- 
ning were, "Our experiences on the Front." and 
"When are we going home?" Either of these 
subjects was sure to get the attention of the 
whole crowd. The war songs, such as, "Over 
There," "Keep the Home Fires Burning," "Hail ! 
Hail! The Gang's All Here," "Pack Up Your 
Troubles," "There's a Long, Long Trail," "Good- 
bye, Broadway," were sung a great deal, but no 
more than the hymns. Almost every night the 

[100] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

boys in some billet were trying to raise the roof 
with "When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder." This 
was sung the most frequently and was the most 
popular of all the songs ever sung in the 321st. 

Toward the last the entertainment, social and 
religious programs in the "Y" huts, under the 
auspices of the "Comrades in Service Move- 
ment," attracted an increasingly large number. 
These "huts," with their canteens, libraries, 
reading and writing rooms and games, and their 
entertainments, debates, mock trials, and shows, 
were the social centers of each camp. But 
these were some of the things we didn't learn 
to appreciate until we were breaking camp. 

The French had heard of our embarkation 
orders and would ask us every day, "Partee 
L'Amerique ?" They were almost as much 
stirred up over our leaving as we were. They 
knew it was best for us to clear out and give 
them a chance to look after their own affairs; 
yet, they showed quite a bit of sentiment in 
their attitude toward our departure. Many of 
them really hated to see us leave. Some of 
them, when we told them good-bye, wept as if 
they were bidding farewell to their own sons. 



In the Le Mans Area. 

The 321st cleared the Chatillon-Sur-Seine dis- 
trict May 14-16, going by train (American box 

[101] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

cars) to the Le Mans area. We went via 
Bourges, St. Aigman, Tours, Le Mans, to La 
Guerche, where regimental headquarters were 
established. Headquarters Company, Supply- 
Company, Machine Gun Company, and the Sani- 
tary Detachment were located at La Guerche; 
the First Battalion at Souligne, the Second Bat- 
talion at La Bazoge, and the Third Battalion at 
Joul L'Abbe and Neuville. Here we stayed 
until June 4, getting new equipment, fixing up 
records, making out passenger lists, and having 
field inspections and reviews. The last of our 
many regimental reviews came on May 31. We 
passed in review with full packs, and, as usual, 
had to double time. There were rain and a 
talk from the colonel to complete the program. 
This was Colonel Halstead's farewell talk. He 
spoke feelingly of his pride and interest in the 
regiment, and appealed to the men to go back 
home as strong and clean as they left. 

On June 4 we were ordered to St. Nazairre, 
our port of embarkation. Another box car 
"joy ride" awaited us. But we knew this was 
our last ride in box cars, and for that reason it 
was a joy ride even though we were packed in 
fifty-two to the car. It is a good thing that 
singing doesn't require any extra space, for it 
was the American soldiers' spirit of song and 
sense of good humor that saved the day on many 
occasions in France. 

[102] 



AFTER THE ARMISTICE 

Port of Embarkation. 

We arrived in St. Nazairre early on the morn- 
ing of June 5. The four days spent here were 
largely taken up with visits to the delousing 
plant, bathing, and medical inspections. If med- 
ical inspections would keep one well, we have 
had enough to keep us well till a ripe old 
age. After being properly deloused, bathed, 
inspected, and fitted out with new clothes, we 
were pronounced fit for a return trip to our 
native soil.

CHAPTER V. 

HOMEWARD BOUND. 

Aboard the U. S. S. Manchuria. 

Finally, that eventful and long looked-f or day- 
arrived. On the morning of June 9, we heard 
that the U. S. S. Manchuria was in the docks 
waiting for us to load on. We marched out of 
camp and down to the docks at 10 :30 a. m., 
and were soon walking up the gangplank of the 
Manchuria. As our boat pulled out from the 
docks, a large crowd of the French and some 
American soldiers belonging to other outfits, 
bade us farewell and shouted "bon voyage." A 
French band played the "Marseillaise" and 
"The Star-Spangled Banner." We had never 
dreamed there would be any sadness of farewell 
for us when we left France, and we certainly 
did not add any salt tears to the briny deep; 
yet, the memory of our days in France, fraught 
as they were with so many thrilling experiences, 
aroused a sentiment that was not void of emo- 
tion. Distance will lend enchantment to many 
a view in La Belle France, and time will help to 
soften the hardness of heart that we sometimes 
had for French mud, town criers, and wood

monopolists. Some day rural France may take 
to heart our lessons in sanitation and street 
cleaning and proclaim us benefactors of her 
people. Then the memory of "policing up" 
French towns will not awaken such unholy 
thought in us. These are some of the thoughts 
that stirred us as the shores of France faded 
from our view. The memory of our comrades 
who had "paid the bill" and would never return 
stirred us deeply. We never knew before how 
much we missed them. We were going home 
and wanted them to go too. This fellow feeling 
is admirably expressed in the following verses 
written by a soldier upon his departure from 
France : 

"GOOD-BYE, OLD PAL." 

Good-bye, old Pal. 
I've been to hell and back again ; 
There's where you fell, in mud, and blood, and rain. 
Sure, we won — you paid the bill; 
You swapped your life for that green hill; 

Good-bye, old Pal. 

Good-bye, eld Pal. 
We're sailing home, our job is done; 
But still your grave's a trench against the Han. 
Call us back; we'll make our stand 
Where you keep guard in No Man's Land. 

Good-bye, old Pal. 

— Soldier, in "Stars and Stripes." 

[105] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

But our thoughts were too much occupied 
with the shores on this side to think long about 
those we were leaving. Could it be true that 
we were actually going home! After six long 
months of weary waiting we were realizing a 
great longing of our souls. '"'When are we going 
home?" ceased to be the all-absorbing topic of 
conversation. We had heard for the last time 
some homesick Sammie shout out above the 
noise of the crowd, "I wanta go home." There 
was very little criticism of the extremely dis- 
agreeable life aboard ship. One fellow would 
say, "This is hell, isn't it?" Another would 
reply, "Yes, it's hell, but we can stand anything 
when we are going home." 

Soldiers may be the best of buddies, yet they 
do not like to be crowded into a boat like cattle. 
But sleeping on three deck bunks within arm's 
length of twenty-three others was not the worst 
thing about life on board. Those who escaped 
seasickness going over seemed destined to have 
their share of it coming back. 

The sea was a little choppy when we pulled 
out of the harbor, and it was not long before we 
were paying our respects to Neptune. After 
the first day we had smooth sailing, things were 
going easy with us, and by the end of the first 
week we were beginning to feel like ourselves 
again. But the eighth day out we encountered 
a storm, which raged for ten hours, and the god 
of the sea again had many worshippers. A 

[106] 



HOMEWARD BOUND 

storm at sea is not conducive to a good appetite, 
consequently the "chow" line was rather thin 
that day. Many of those who kept their appe- 
tites lost their equilibrium going up stairs, and 
spilled soup, beans and "slum" on the heads of 
comrades below. 

The boat was too crowded for games, other 
than checkers, cards, and dice. Many of the 
men passed much of their time reading, writing 
letters, and talking. The moving pictures 
shown by the Y. M. C. A. each night were 
enjoyed by all who could get near enough to 
see. The Y. M. C. A., the Jewish Welfare 
Board, the Knights of Columbus, and the Red 
Cross were all represented on board the Man- 
churia, and all rendered excellent service. 
Much was done by these welfare organizations 
to make our life aboard ship more pleasant and 
comfortable. 

The regimental band was on board and helped 
greatly, as on many previous occasions, to drive 
dull care away. A band is a tremendously 
important adjunct to a military unit, even if 
modern warfare no longer permits of marching 
into battle to the strains of martial music with 
flying flags and beating drums. The new duties 
of bandmen on the front, as stretcher-bearers 
and runners, are perhaps more prosaic — they 
are certainly more exciting. 

When we awoke on the morning of the 20th 
and went up on deck, land, our own native land, 

[107] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

was in sight. We could hardly have been hap- 
pier if we had seen our own homes. We felt, 
as did Sir Walter Scott, and could say with him : 

Breathes there a man with soul so dead, 

Who never to himself hath said, 

This is my own, my native land? 

Whose heart hath ne'er within him br.rned, 

As home his footsteps he hath turned 

From wandering on a foreign strand? 

Passing between Capes Charles and Henry, 
we steamed through Chesapeake Bay, and into 
Hampton Roads. We were met at Newport 
News by delegations from North and South 
Carolina, and a committee representing the 
citizens of Newport News. 



Back Home Again — Demobilization. 

After spending four days in Camp Stuart, 
being deloused, inspected and fitted out with 
new clothes, we were sent to camps nearest our 
homes to be discharged. We realized that we 
would never be together again as a regiment, 
and rejoiced that inspections and parades were 
finis. When we reached the camps in which we 
were to be mustered out, only a few hours lay 
between us and that much desired piece of paper 
bearing the words : "Honorable Discharge from 
the United States Army." It was only a matter

of completing the individual records of each 
man, going through a few more medical inspec- 
tions, and checking in equipment. The company 
clerks and personnel force had not fully recup- 
erated from the strenuous siege of paper work 
at Le Mans, but one would never have known it 
from the way they were pounding and "cussing" 
broken keyed typewriters and shuffling record 
sheets. With the help of all men of clerical 
ability in the regiment, these ink slingers and 
pen pushers cleared their desks in quick order. 
Over half the States of the Union were repre- 
sented in the regiment. Men who belonged to 
the same squad or who had lived in the same 
billet for months, were from States widely sep- 
arated. They realized that they would very 
probably never see each other again. Strong 
friendships had been formed — the one thing that 
had saved many a soldier from despair, and per- 
haps suicide. Every soldier, perhaps, had a 
Buddie whose friendship was a constant inspira- 
tion and joy to him and to whom he owes a debt 
of gratitude that can never be squared. The 
following poem from a Colorado comrade 
expresses, in a remarkably fine way, the emo- 
tions and sentiments that stirred us as we said 
"Good-bye, Bud." 



[109] 



THE 321ST INFANTRY 

"SO LONG, BUD." 

Well, I s'pose the time has come to say good-bye, Bud;" 
We're goin' home, our work is o'er, we've won. 

An' 'fore we part, y'see, I'm gonna try, Bud, 

To thank you jes' for what you've been an' done. 

You've watched me when I lay in bed a-sick, Bud; 

You've slammed me on the back when I was blue, 
An' that ole slap jes' seemed to do the trick, Bud; 

It cheered me up jes' cause it came from you. 

You've split your coin with me when I was broke, Bud, 
An' never as't me where it went, or why. 

You've took my surly moods as jes' a joke, Bud, 
An' things I've said when sore you've let pass by. 

You've stood beside me when the shells broke near, Bud, 
An' grinned, an' given me courage with that grin. 

You've called a steady, cheerin' word, an' fear, Bud, 
Jes' left me an' I drove that bay'net in. 

Through all the weary days and nights we spent, Bud, 
A-sloshin' through the mud an' rain an' sleet; 

I know that each bright word from you was meant, Bud, 
To keep me up an' on my staggerin' feet. 

Well, now I'm goin' back — she's waitin' yet, Bud, 
God bless her — gee, I've missed her over there, 

So here's so long to you, an' don't forget, Bud, 
I owe a debt to you that I can't square.

THE 81ST DIVISION 

Official Historical Sketch. 

The 81st Division was organized at Camp 
Jackson, Columbia, S. C, August 25, 1917. 
The majority of the officers and men were from 
the States of North Carolina, South Carolina 
and Florida. At Camp Jackson a large number 
of men were transferred out of the division to 
other divisions and new drafted men were 
received from North Carolina, South Carolina, 
Florida and other Southern States. At Camp 
Sevier about 6,000 additional drafted men were 
received from Alabama and 1,200 from New 
York. 

The 81st Division is named the "Stonewall 
Division, " but most people speak of it as the 
"Wildcat Division," from its shoulder insignia, 
which is a wildcat in a circle, different colors 
being used to designate various organizations, 
as follows : 

White Wildcat— 161st Infantry B-igade. 

Blue Wildcat— 162d Infantry Brigade. 

Red Wildcat— 156th Field Artillery Brigade, 
306th Ammunition Train, 306th Trench Mortar 
Battery. 

Black Wildcat — Division Headquarters, 306th 
Engineers and Train, 316th Machine Gun Bat- 
talion, 306th Train Headquarters and Military 
Police. 

Orange Wildcat— 306th Field Signal Bat- 
talion. 

[133] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

Green Wildcat— 306th Sanitary Train. 

Buff Wildcat— 306th Supply Train. 

On May 16, 1918, the division (less 156th 
Field Artillery Brigade) moved from Camp 
Jackson to Camp Sevier, S. C. 

The division (less the artillery brigade) 
began moving from Camp Sevier, S. C, on July 
13 for Port of Embarkation at Hoboken, N. J. 
This continued until July 22. The first units 
sailed July 31 and arrived at Liverpool, Eng- 
land, en route to France, August 11, 1918. 

The division arrived in France on August 16, 
1918, and proceeded to the training area at 
Tonnerre (Yonne), except the 156th Artillery 
Brigade and the 306th Ammunition Train, 
which were sent to Camp Valdahon (Doubs). 

After a month's training, the division, less 
the artillery brigade and the ammunition train, 
proceeded to the St. Die sector (Vosges), arriv- 
ing on September 19, and occupied the same 
until the 19th of October. It formed a part of 
the 33d Corps (French), and later, the 10th 
Corps (French). 

During this month of service in the sector, 
the division was engaged in and repulsed raids. 
One of the latter, preceded by a long and severe 
artillery preparation by the Germans, was fol- 
lowed by an attack of about one hundred shock 
troops, who were repulsed with some ten killed, 
one captured and probably several wounded. 
Shotguns and automatic rifles were successfully 

[134] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

used by our troops, one of our men killing three 
Germans with an automatic. During the occu- 
pancy of this sector, the casualties were : Killed, 
2 officers, 19 men ; wounded, 14 men. 

The division left the St. Die sector on Sep- 
tember 19, and proceeded to the vicinity of 
Rambervillers (Vosges) to await transportation 
to join the First Army for the Meuse-Argonne 
offensive. It reached the Sommedieue sector, 
south of Verdun, early in November ; joined the 
Second Colonial Corps (French), remaining in 
reserve a few days, and on November 6 replaced 
the 35th Division in this sector. 

On the night of November 8, orders were 
received to attack the German lines on the 
Woevre Plain the next morning. During the 
night, the troops were withdrawn from the 
north and south ends of the sector, which was 
some 24 kilometers long, concentrated, and at 
8:00 o'clock in the morning advanced to the 
attack. 

The Germans had held this position since 
early in the war; their lines were full of pill 
boxes and strong centers of resistance, all of 
concrete, and the low and marshy plain was 
full of wire. Three German divisions con- 
fronted the 81st — the Fifth Prussian Guards, 
Third Bavarians and the Thirteenth Landwehr. 

The division advanced with but little artillery 
perparation, due to lack of heavy guns and of 
horses for the 75's, and when the Armistice 
[135] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

went into effect on November 11, had advanced 
some five and a half kilometers and were cross- 
ing the Hindenburg line near Etain. 

The 60th Artillery Brigade of the 35th Divi- 
sion had remained in place and gave the division 
all possible support in the operation. 

The casualties of the division in the three 
days' fighting were : Killed, 11 officers, 167 men ; 
wounded, 34 officers, 757 men ; captured, 1 offi- 
cer, 56 men ; missing, 6 men. 

On November 18, the division left the Somme- 
dieue sector for the training area around Cha- 
tillon-Sur-Seine (Cote d'Or), reaching there 
December 3, and remained there, with head- 
quarters at Mussy-Sur-Seine. The artillery 
brigade then joined the division, which formed 
a part of the Eighth Corps. The First Army 
and the Eighth Corps were discontinued on 
April 20, 1919, and the division then joined the 
Ninth Corps. On May 2 the division passed to 
the "S. 0. S." Beginning May 9 the division 
was moved to the Le Mans area, with headquar- 
ters at Ballon. During the first two weeks of 
June the division moved to Brest and' St. 
Nazairre, from which ports the various units 
of the division sailed soon after arriving in 
these ports. Upon arrival in the States the 
men were sent to camps nearest their homes to 
be discharged. 



[136] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

How the 81st Got the Name "Wildcat/'' 

The name "Wildcat" proved to be quite a 
popular and appropriate name for the 81st 
Division. It was appropriate in more than one 
sense, for when the men of this division were 
sent against the Huns in the Vosges Mountains 
and in the Meuse-Argonne offensive, they emu- 
lated the fighting qualities of the wildcat so well 
that they were thereafter considered entirely 
worthy of the name "Wildcats." The name 
originated at Camp Jackson, where the division 
was organized, and was suggested by a creek 
in the edge of the camp, which bore the name 
"Wildcat Creek." This name was recom- 
mended by Colonel Halstead and later adopted 
by the division staff. The "Wildcat" shoulder 
insignia was adopted from drawings submitted 
by Sergt. Dan Silverman, Headquarters Com- 
pany, 321st Infantry. 

The name "Stonewall" was recommended by 
Major Daniel W. Adams, in honor of General 
"Stonewall" Jackson. 

At the time of our transfer from the Eighth 
Corps, the following letter was received by 
Major General Bailey : 
Dear General: 

As the Eighth Corps, to which your division has 
belonged for nearly five months, is about to be discon- 
tinued, I take this occasion to express to you my sin- 
cerest thanks and appreciation of the fine work and 
progress accomplished by it in the domain of administra- 

[137] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

tion and training. The 81st Division has a right to be 
proud of its record of accomplishment, and I feel no 
hesitancy in assuring you of my firm conviction that 
this division is prepared to give an excellent account 
of itself whether in field or garrison. It is with deep 
regret that I lose this superior division from my com- 
mand. It would have afforded me great satisfaction 
and confidence to have commanded the 81st Division 
in combat. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Henry T. Allen, 
Major General, U. S. A., 
Commanding Eighth Army Corps. 

"With such a record, the division may return 
home proud of its service in France as a part 
of the American Expeditionary Forces." 

This is Gen. John J. Pershing's praise of the 
"Wildcats," in a letter addressed to Maj. Gen. 
Charles J. Bailey. The letter follows : 

France, April 13, 1919. 
Major General Charles J. Bailey, 
Commanding 81st Division, 
American E. F. 
My Dear General Bailey: 

It gives me great satisfaction to extend to you, and 
the officers and men of the 81st Division, my compli- 
ments upon their appearance at the review and inspec- 
tion on April 10, at Chatillon-Sur-Seine. The trans- 
portation and artillery of the division was in good 
shape, and the general bearing of the men was up to 
a high standard, and worthy of a division which, though 
in France for a comparatively short time, has made a 
splendid record. 

Arriving in this country toward the middle of August, 
your period of training in the area near Tonnerre was 
[138] 



THE 81ST DIVISION 

interrupted by the necessity of sending the "division into 
the line, to relieve for the active battle veteran organiza- 
tions. The 81st was in the St. Die sector from the 18th 
of September to the 19th of October, when it was with- 
drawn and prepared for its participation in the Meuse- 
Argonne offensive. 

It entered the line in this operation on the night of 
November 6, relieving the 35th Division as the right 
flank division of the First Army, and attacking on the 
morning of November 9 against heavy artillery and 
machine gun fire. The attack was continued November 
10 and 11, and was resolutely pushed against strong 
enemy resistance, the advance covering five and a half 
kilometers. 

The bearing of the division in this, its first expe- 
rience, showed the mettle of officers and men, and gave 
promise of what it would become as a veteran. With 
such a record, the division may return home proud of 
its service in France as a part of the American Expe- 
ditionary Forces. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) John J. Pershing.
